    Thank you for your service.

    Doesn't take away from the fact that you're mistaken about Vietnam.

    Son, I lived that history. We got our asses handed to us. We were run off the continent with our tail between our legs.

    The mistake is all yours, apdst. And the derailing of a thread about '31 American and Afghan military personnel' is also extremely disrespectful....

    Care to point to the battles we lost; how they inflicted heavier casualties upon us with their overwhelming combat power? Who did we surrender to, Giap? When did the retreat take place?

    I can't wait to hear your version of the history of the war.

    Using their deaths as proof that we're losing the war is even more disgusting. Did you read the OP?

    This wasnt just any military unit, it was members of Seal Team Six, some Afghan commandos and assorted AF personnel. Single largest loss of life and it happens to be among some of the best soldiers we have. Sad day.

    Huge blow to the Special Forces community, obviously. But an even worse blow to their families and loved ones.

    May God bless those who mourn today.

    And may we just get out of that place once and for all.
