Read full description of the books Conversations With the Enemy: The Story of PFC Robert Garwood:Wow. What a shitty war Vietnam was, and what shitty people waged it. I have no doubt Garwood did everything he was accused of in the court martial, but the only thing that's a crime unless you're some hoo-rah armchair 'you can't break a Marine' chickenhawk was punching the guy who ratted out his best friend to the jailors and got him killed.
Which sounds like just as bad if not worse than what he faced the death penalty for. And then the US government cheating a guy out of 15 years of back pay (at $10k/year, what a prize) because we were still being a bunch of little pussy sore losers about the whole thing. For further reference on what a bunch of whiny spanked bullies we were about the whole Vietnam experience, consult your local Rambo/Missing in Action/Red Dawn/other assorted he-man kicking commie ass movie from the 80's.
More stuff changes the more it says the same. Stalin threw all the returning POW's into jail, we would have done the same to the Vietnam vets if it wouldn't have looked bad (but we made sure to nail at least one to the wall), and now Bowe Bergdahl. And it's always the ones who yell loudest about supporting the troops while we're fighting a stupid losing war who want to pile on the people who got broken by their stupid losing war while we were losing it.
