  Before we went to vietnam, we were patriotic, and did what we were told and trained to do. When we got to vietnam we had a rude awakening into reality, from the pieceful life we had left behind in the United States. After our 365 day tour we came back not trusting everything we see, and especially politicians, cause they say what people want to here just to get elected, although some actually care, that changes when they are in office for a while, when they come to a rude awakening them selves. I guess we learned allot in that 365 day tour of duty, something you can never forget, so you just have to live with it, and continue to live. When you live with life and death situations for 365 day tour of duty, your not shell shocked, your just worked into a conditioned reflex action to survive, even when your back in the United States. Some People will never understand the Vietnam Veteran, why he/she is the way they are, only the ones who were there can really understand. Written by Alfred L. Peterson, 45th Surgical Hospital Tay Ninh, Vietnam Aug.1968-Aug.1969 & 86th Transportation Company Long Binh Vietnam 1970-1971, I had to go back because in Vietnam I could survive and I felt more at home, I did not like State Side Duty ! or Fort Hood Stockaid !

Colby's Vietnam: History Misrepresented Former CIA director William Colby's article "El Salvador: Which Vietnam"? [op-ed, 4/20] describes the various stages of U.S. involvement in Vietnam and offers the period 1968 to 1972--the era of the CIA "Phoenix" assassination teams--as a model for use in El Salvador. In addition to this heinous recommendation, his article ignores the massive evidence of the Pentagon Papers and grossly distorts the facts.
