Comment: And Vietnam was for patriots right?

And Vietnam was for patriots right?

When I was faced with going to Vietnam a buddy invited me to go with him to apply for the Air National Guard. I did all the paperwork, took the exam and physical and waited.
Then they had a lottery system to determine who would go to Nam.

My number came out at like 330 (the highest was 365 - the number of days in the year) so I basically decided not to go into the military.

That process of applying and waiting gave me time to see that Vietnam wasn't a good thing. It was a criminal endeavor.
And I was spared a s-h-i-t-t-y life, unlike a lot of my friends who either came back f-u-c-k-e-d up or died.
