I am not very proud of my Vietnam service record. I went where I was assigned without any political or social perspective of the situation.
I felt that my assignment was too protected to put myself into the same category of vets who were more in harms way. I had no risk of dealing with agent orange or ptsd. My riskiest times were a couple dark nights of guard duty on the perimeter of the largest Army post in country ( Long Binh) and a few helicopter rides and jeep rides to visit some outposts.
When trying to conjure up a name for the first painting of the day, Vietnam came to mind.
