Certainly greatly exaggerated. I know plenty of ex-Nam soldiers, and not a
single one of them would I consider unhinged or suffering from
post-traumatic stress syndrome. The mainstream press seems bent on selling
kids the notion that if they are sent to war they will be crazy. I just
haven't seen that.

Nixon was a Navy guy in WW2, Ford was a Navy guy in WW2, Carter was a Navy
guy after the war, Reagan served in WW2 making training videos, may he rest
