I just watched a show on the men in th troops in Vietnam in the end of the war
Many were openly disobying orders, because they saw the destruction they were raining on the farmer the women the children...some yes may have been dangerous-
We as a military force were brutal also.
Many did not want to commit those acts. Many became so brutalized by their own brutality, they lost themselves. Many were boys hardened by war
The point, we left many troops stranded behind line in country and their supply lines were cut off before they could retreat back where the supply lines were still operable.
We won't even discuss what they faced. Brutal, brutal.
While I would never support a war, I woudl support the boys that go to fight, and girls. They are ususually young, and patiotic, much of that falls away at first sight of their tours of duty lengthen. They are dying also.
