I am not against war. I am a combat Vietnam Veteran. I know war. Lives were stolen in Vietnam and we are doing again every day, maybe not in same numbers but the lessons of Vietnam have more than been forgotten. The brightest time in American history, another "greatest generation" may well have been the one that stopped an evil and corrupt war. That generation saw the cost.

Did you know that you are the only person serving in Congress with a Presidential pardon?
