I’ve been watching Vietnam in HD on the History Channel (http://www.history.com/shows/vietnam-in-hd). It is powerful stuff and I recommend it for anyone who wants to improve their understanding of the conflict.

I am so very grateful that my Dad made it back from there in one piece. He went over when I was six months old, in the fall of 1968 and was awarded a Bronze Star and Silver Star for (in his words) staying alive when his guys didn’t.
