    Two men, two lives, two directions.

    My brother was in Vietnam, he didn't kill anyone directly but he was maintaining bombers.

    When he got home, he had friends who broke down and cried talking about the people they killed on the ground. One incident, in the afternoon, a squad saw movement in the elephant grass and opened fire. It was some children on their way home. No way anyone can get over this. This war lives on in memory.

    But bombing is more remote, the pilots don't get to see the carnage up close.

    peace.
