20. I was a DJ in Vietnam a bit later.. Sincere condolences. He was a lifelong Republican, for W. Bush's

2004 re-election of a government filled with shirkers. These shirkers had flat out lied us into the long military quagmire in Iraq, thus repeating the "egregious mistake" (Robert McNamara's apologetic words) of the Vietnam War. Of course, John Kerry and Hillary Clinton were also responsible for accepting these lies to authorize the Iraq War, but they were among many of those duped rather than being among the deliberate liars about Saddam's WMD. No wonder Trump brazenly tells so many preposterous lies, knowing full well that Republicans will never act to hold him to account.

Adrian deserves the highest praise for significantly alleviating the misery of troops in Vietnam and a his subsequent life of worthwhile public service. I am not disparaging him in the least; it's just a pity how even well-meaning folks who are genuine patriots like him sometimes can be be used by iniquitous politicians to support decisions that are actually extremely harmful for America.
