Hidden Story of the Americans that Finished the Vietnam War – Real Hope
Excerpts and adaptation:
The Soldier’s Revolt
by Joel Geier
Our army that now remains in Vietnam is in a state approaching collapse, with individual units avoiding or having refused combat, murdering their officers and noncommissioned officers, drug-ridden, and dispirited where not near-mutinous conditions exist among American forces in Vietnam that have only been exceeded in this century by…the collapse of the Tsarist armies in 1916 and 1917.
Armed Forces Journal, June 1971
The most neglected aspect of the Vietnam War is the soldiers’ revolt–the mass upheaval from below that unraveled the American army. It is a great reality check in an era when the U.S. touts itself as an invincible nation. For this reason, the soldiers’ revolt has been written out of official history.
If you’ve got the guts to read the rest of this article you just might find you come back with just a little more respect in your heart for these people we “Vietnam Veterans.” Real people that let their actions speak to the truth of their honor and integrity. They didn’t lose any war. They made peace!
