Did you really think that was somehow amusing? It wasn’t. It made me angry.

I remember the scenes at the airport where the Vietnam war protesters were throwing red paint on the soldiers returning from Vietnam and yelling at them things like "baby killer" and so on. I remember wearing my Vietnam era combat boots around in civilian life because by the time I got home from Nam they were "comfortable" and familiar and I suppose I was showing everybody that I wasn't some goddamn war protester, that I had put my life on the line for our country and that now I expected some goddamn respect. And it never happened. It was like my society was saying to me that I was somehow responsible for the war. I remember the rude stares and being something to be avoided. I remember my sweet sister Jeri saying to me in 2019 "thanks for your service" and I remember thinking in my head "way too f..king little and way too f..king late". So I get it that you are angry. But I really think that Eskuche meant nothing offensive. I also think he was never there, incountry. He probably doesn't know what it means to us, deep down, personally. So I'm going to ask you in a very nice way to forgive him and be the bigger person. Let it slide off you like water off a duck. Please, let's get along and work together to make this a friendly helpful forum. But if you really feel like this is the last straw just PM him and remind him that he smells like a used car.

What relevance does this have with with the WarPlan Pacific game?
This is random posting with political content and is more suitable in other types of forums or a game forum related to the Vietnam war.

I’m not meaning to offend the OP but just felt the need to reply because of the comments against an earlier poster.

Have a nice day.

You may be correct. So what?

Thank you very much. The feeling is mutual.

I have no sense of humor left at all about Vietnam. None.
