Some random comments on reddit about Army Nurse with her Carbine 1969 Vietnam [1600x1037]
- Ikr. Seeing that brought back some memories. My parents would save coffee cans and Ritz cans. Jesus.
- Holy shit, she looks like she should be in eighth grade. Damn.
- So did a lot of the boys that were sent off to die
- I think the average age of a U.S. soldier in WWII was something like 22 or 23 but the average age of a soldier in Vietnam was 19.
- I turned 21 in Khe Sahn. About my tenth or eleventh month, I totally remember looking at the new 19 y.o. replacements and pitying them; they seemed like such kids.
- Thanks for your service! Not sure if you got any of the hate Vietnam Vets got, but i'm happy you did it.
- no hate for me. people mostly didn't seem to care much. I never had or knew another VN vet that got harassed, and am not sure all the stories are true. Did get in a weird thing while still in my dress greens in a restaurant when some drunk said some stupid things, but my buddies hustled him away before I could get up from my table and go upside his head. That's it; my only 'hate story'.
- You should do an ama. If you don't mind I'd like to ask some questions. Have you ever seen Winter soldier and are the atrocities described in that movie accurate and what kind of war crimes did you see? Thank you.
- Woops, thanked a soldier on left leaning Reddit, now I get down voted. Oh well. Glad to hear that man! Too many people mix up the desires of a soldier and the desires of a government/military.
- Woops, thanked a soldier on left leaning Reddit, now I get down voted. Oh well. Nah, I downvoted this one because it's whiny.
- Whiny? How exactly?
- Well for one, you're whining.
- Considering you are well north of negative votes, I'm not sure what you're talking about here. Sounds like projection.
- I'm at negative 15 dude hahaha
- ... the post btiching about being downvoted because librul reddit, yes. The post actually thanking the servicemember is, however, far from it.
- You are a great American, thank you for your service.
- See, that's skewed a bit because, at least to my understanding, the US military before 1941 had a MASSIVE non-commissioned officer corp of guys in their 20s and even 30s, and this did not exist before/during Vietnam. Plus, in WWII, if you were "lucky" you could be serving from 1942 til 1945, so the average ages goes up during the war. If everyone's just serving a 1 year tour at 18-19, that remains the mean.
