    I too am not able to click ‘like’ on this one. It is just too horrific. The insanity of it all.

      Thanks for taking the time to comment on this subject. It is one of those events that does not go away and, hopefully, serves as a lesson for those who come through the ranks of the military afterwards.

    Can’t really hit “like” for this one.

      Today’s a tough one, Janet. I worked on a job with a sheet metal guy back in 1971 and he served with Lt. Calley before the Mi Lai incident. This guy’s tour was up and he was back in the U.S. when the massacre happened. He was adamant throughout the trial and afterwards that Lt. Calley was incapable of such an act.
