20. Yea, all the negatives are there and are preeminent, just going with your O.P. about the good things

that are not the first things we think about regarding him.

I volunteered, not because I was *for* the war but for lack of economic, educational, and employment options, as the formerly well thought of Charlie RANGEL said so well.

And at the risk of offending many who marched, I have come to think that much of the marching was more against being Drafted with "peace" as a higher ground. And I have come to think that the reason I didn't have the much maligned huge student loan debts was that I sold four years of my life for education/employment/economics - although I didn't plan it that way.
