Wages of War Epilogue and Greatest Generations

by sbattles | December 2nd, 2010

I thought that the authors of Wages of War brought up a very interesting point about the Vietnam war. They said that the Vietnam war was no different than any of the other wars, it just caused the nation to divide. In a way that’s true. Yes, American soldiers were not treated as hero’s, but the government still treated them the same way as any of the other veterans. I’m not putting down the Vietnam veterans sacrifice in any way. I just thought it was very interesting. I feel like it goes back to wars being Romanticized again.

I really did like the part about veterans being our teachers now and telling us those lost memories. I did get that feeling when I was talking to my veteran. He had all these stories and they changed his life, and he was willing to share that with me. I thought it was pretty cool!
