Before American troops were in Afghanistan, where the “Vietnam Plan for Afghanistan” is taking place, as if there wasn’t a template for this already with Vietnam, there was the actual Vietnam experience. See link#1 for a most excellent story of a 3rd Recon Marine mission in Vietnam, and one of the injured Recon Marine’s stories. Recon Marines are TOP TIER! God bless them! Before the GWOT there was Vietnam. Links from around the GWOT:

1.) 3rd Recon Marines in Vietnam. A most excellent story, needs read by Americans, and especially our elected officials and military officers. God bless our Recon Marines, they are TOP TIER! Look at the haunting photo of the two 19-year old Recon Marines in Vietnam before their helicopter was shot down in 1967, where one died, and one was seriously injured. God bless you 3rd Recon, then and now! Link:
