    I'm a recently retired senior citizen. I'm a US Army and Vietnam veteran, and an avid defender of our great nation. I spent my entire adult life (that is, after 6 years in the military) working for a living. I built a service-industry business from scratch and ran it successfully (working dusk to dawn 6 days a week) for almost 20 years. I'm now looking forward to some down time and being able to spend more time with my family and friends.
    I believe in honesty and responsibility in all things, whether it's in work, play or talk. I give my opinions on those things that matter to me and ignore those that don't.
    I'm sure I'll meet both agreements and disagreements on topics of politics, sports, and just about anything else that concerns or interests us. I hope that as a new member, I can add as much as I'm sure to receive.
    See you on the threads!

    Hi and welcome.
    Perhaps you could explain how the Vietnam war defended America.
    Sorry not to be able to work it out for myself.

    do you have any point at all?

    why would he be able to explain more adequately than anyone else, including yourself?

    He said he was a Vietnam vet and defender of America.
    Perhaps the two are different things as I don't believe the winning, American arse kicking, Vietnam People's Army had any plans to invade the US of A.

    well, it is not as easy as all that. i mean, i did the vietnam thing too and i like to think i stand up for the constitution and all but i don't think the two are mutually inclusive or exclusive.

    where were you when all this was going down.
