It was misreported then, and it is misremembered now.” This is a sentiment reflected by many Vietnam War veterans today. One such veteran, Mike Clarke, served as an infantry medic in the Vietnam war.

There was a sense of duty to be sure, given the terrorist attacks on 9/11, but I would have joined anyway just to get out of the Upper Peninsula and into that unknown world of the military. Fast forward to a deployment to Iraq, where like many of you, I learned about losing friends when 9 members of my platoon, ranging from the PL down to the newest Soldier, were killed by a pair of suicide bombers. I also, like many of you, grew from those dark experiences. And on a lighter note, I’m sure many of you can relate to the old adage of, “I’d trust my buddy with my life but not my sister.” Some things
