Viet Photo - A man returns (Youtube). Vietnam war veteran Rich Luttrell returns the photo of a man he shot and killed to the daughter. Background story.

In the words of Henry Allingham, world's oldest man and veteran of WWI: “War’s stupid, nobody wins. You might as well talk first, you have to talk last anyway.”

  • The great white hope. Love the Cher near 3:00. Thanks. I'm embarrassed to be an American again. And yes, I know, Marc Cohn.
  • On the one hand, we have the typical American ~3 minute feel-good video, dry your eyes, get on with your life feeling that lovely catharsis. On the other, if I thought it would do any good I'd chain every US male to the television and make them watch this for 48 hours. But it wouldn't. You either get it, or you don't. Unfortunately, most that do, don't get it until after. Love the Cher...unnh what?
  • Thanks for this link... multiple layers of meaning for me...
