Where'd ya serve, ajole?

Kelt's appraisal of US servicemen in Vietnam is not entirely correct. Sure, the units were very rarely integrated to anywhere near the extent allowed by some French units, but the standard, Hollywood-inspired portrayal of said servicemen as a bunch of Asian-despising, unpatriotic animals is far from the reality. The vast majority felt as much compassion and sympathy for the indigenous as the French did, and truly believe that the war was just. I'm sure Kelt meant no malice, either. The US involvement very closely mirrored that of the French in many ways, large and small.

Cheers mates.
