    That “never lost a battle” sounds almost like the German “backstab”-legend: After the first world war many nationalists claimed that Germany never lost in the field but instead was brought down by left-wing movements and politicians.

    Well written list, I also appreciated the exact video quote of JFK-most people would not take the time to include that. Thank you.

    Regarding number 1 I’ll tell ya’ what: why don’t YOU go thousands of miles from home and live in a place where the weather, the food and damn near everything else is so completely foriegn you can’t begin to comprehend it and then add the pressure of military discipline to that and then tell me how “cushy” you’re life on a base is. As someone who’s seen both sides of the coin I can say that deployment is awful regardless of whether or not you’re “in the s**t”. When I was a medic with the Army Infantry whenever I heard someone say anything about “fobbits”, a deragotory word for all the people who have the “cushy” base assignments I’d ask them if they liked to eat, or if they enjoyed getting paid or if they appreciated being able to call home, because guess who has to do that stuff?

    There were a lot of myths, political, social, and militarily, about and surrounding the Vietnam War. Some are true, some only partially true, some blatantly false. Some of these things on this list might surprise you. To a lot of my fellow FB friends from my generation, these things will most likely not surprise, but to those of my friends who’re a younger generation, you’ll find these interesting, to say the least. :)

    There are many problems finding out the truth about a conflict that epitomized the cold war
