Excellent article -- although I'm hesitant to completely believe anything written so worshipfully... especially about a 2Lt!

“A lie was the worst sin,” Mueller says. “The one thing you didn’t do was to give anything less than the truth to my mother and father.”

“I remember several times walking into a bunker and finding him in a corner with a book,” Maranto says. “He read a lot, every opportunity.”

“I consider myself exceptionally lucky to have made it out of Vietnam,” Mueller said years later in a speech. “There were many—many—who did not. And perhaps because I did survive Vietnam, I have always felt compelled to contribute.”
....maybe he should run for President.   :pop:
There’s nothing more maddening than debating someone who doesn’t know history, doesn’t read books, and frames their myopia as virtue. The level of unapologetic conjecture I’ve encountered lately isn’t just frustrating, it’s retrogressive, unprecedented, and absolutely terrifying.

Actually if the Dems ran a middle of the road Vietnam Vet, they likely do very well against Trump. But I think they have star in their eyes about the Hispanic female champagne Socialist.
