All the experts say we are the product of our environments. One can argue yay or nay. I don’t need to argue. I know what my answer is… now, with the passage of time and much needed reflection.

Not everyone drafted during the turbulent sixties went to Vietnam. By hook or by crook, or just plain luck, many landed in the friendlier climes of places like Okinawa. That side of the story is seldom heard. While the troops in Vietnam fought heroically, often with less than full support, thousands of others skated by nearly untouched by the harsh realities of war.
