Of course I asked him what it was about and he said, "When we came back from Viet Nam, no one even greeted us."

I told him, "Let's go kick somebody's ass." He burst out laughing and we talked for a while. Didn't even exchange names but I'll never forget him.
I remember the nightly news consisting mainly of body bags. We were WRONG to blame the military:

Don't try to discuss politics with a military member or a veteran.
We are Americans, and we all bleed the same, regardless of our party
affiliation. Our Chain of Command is to include our Commander-In-Chief (C
n C). The President (for those who didn't know) is our C in C regardless of
political party. We have no inside track on what happens inside those big
important buildings where all those representatives meet. All we know is
that when those civilian representatives screw up the situation, they call
upon the military to go straighten it out. If you keep asking us the same
stupid questions repeatedly, you will get your ass kicked!
