Jeff — This is right on the mark. I’ll bet there are a lot of sailors who said something like I did when I thought I was being assigned to little fast boats in the rivers of SVN: “I didn’t join the Navy to fight a ‘ground war’.” That billet went away, so I went to Saigon instead. Interesting how “ground troopers” never get sent to sea “to help”, except for our Marine brethren, of course. Mike
