Re: This is totally inapprop

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I was in the service, but as an Army Reserve. I was, a war protester and
campus activist in the late sixties. I am not sorry for my actions nor do I
feel that I did anything wrong to protest a war a I felt in my heart was
wrong. I also have strong personal convictions about the war, but don't feel
that this is the appropriate place to discuss this matter. I admire anyone
who fights strongly for their belief whether it took them to Viet Nam or
whether they stayed to protest. There will never be a resolution to this
matter as long as good people lost their lives in the war. So please, let's
take it off the list and bring it to a newsgroup where it is more
appropriate in the respect of differing opinons.
