    lives were changed forever by the Vietnam War. Some served, some didn't, but it seems that everyone had some dues to pay.
    I was an airman in the early eighties. I see these kids coming off the planes, and I think that if Reagan had totally lost his shit, that could've been me. When I think about the families of these young people-parents, children, spouses-I just come unglued. I never say this in the IGTNT diaries out of respect to the families and the spirit of the diaries, but we've got to stop this shit!
