I came to this thread late, as I have just finished watching a couple of episodes this morning (looking for the possibility of seeing some of my unit on film). I wasn't going to post, but after reading the opening comment, I felt I had to.
Having "been there, done that", I can vouch for the brutality and finality of war - not the reason. While the war was ultimately lost as a result of Washington's policies and the limitations put on us in the way of target selection and operational freedom, it does not diminish the sacrifices made by the soldiers, both enlisted and conscripted, as the writer (whose greatest sacrifice would most likely be doing without that second latte)so blithely intimates.
His post has to be the most hypocritical drivel in history - taking the term "pious" to unimaginable heights. The poster is obviously a product of our more recent public school system, where the only history taught is the revisionist version designed to minimize the innate goodness of America in favor of the progressive view of the US as warmongering for no apparent reason. This snarky diatribe serves only to highlight the staggering naiveté of today's youth - full of angst and anger, while having no greater generation problem to deal with than a cell phone battery going dead in the middle of a mindless tweet.
Stop trying to place your narcissistic slacker "Millennial" spin on history, and go back to your Playstation, where you can play shoot-em-up all day without the consequence of return fire....news flash - real life doesn't come with a reset button.
