More Vietnam Vets Have Committed Suicide than Were Killed in the War
Laurence M. Vance
That is what Marjorie Cohn claims out in “US Government Sanitizes Vietnam War History.” Having written about military suicides several times, I have no doubt that what she says is true. What any of these Vietnam vet have committed if they had not gone to Vietnam. Perhaps a few. But not 58,000. Suicide is what fighting an unjust and immoral war leads to. I can’t imagine large numbers of men committing suicide years after actually defending the United States from attack.
Stay out of the military–you might commit suicide later. And that is no hyperbole.
