Speech" The US should leave South Vietnam"
After I finish my tour at Vietnam, I will certainly be joining the anti war protest. I
will never forget what I saw in my tour, I will never forget what happened in my tour.
Friends were killed, many more were injured. Just one second we were chatting
about home and the next thing there was a hole in my friend's chest. One day ago we
were just sleeping in the same camp, the next day I was alone, that feeling I will
never forget, the feeling of me being left alone. Not just I felt the pain, many and
many others soldier felt the same, this should not be what they get, they should be
having a happy life in the United states and have a nice job and a nice family and
children. They should not be in Vietnam, they should be holding a gun and fight, they
should not be in this war. They should not be killing people. They should not be

their commander?
Many soldier began to question what they were in Vietnam and what they were
fighting for and would they actually win the war. The soldiers that were directly
involved in the fighting realized that the war was going badly and lost confidence in
their officers and many of them tried to leave the army. If the our soldier want to
leave and do not want to fight, why don't we just leave Vietnam? No one will give
their 100% of effort fighting in the war? What is the point of fighting if that
As the morale of the our army fighting troops fell and the boredom of those people
not directly involved increased, so as a result the amounting of people taking drugs

life we should just get out of Vietnam and be like USSR and supply the South
