Finally the truth is published about who won the Vietnam War

Finally, history gets corrected. I'm a Vietnam War veteran, serving on board the USS Mullinnix (DD-944) in 1969 when my crew set a record for the most gunfire support of any Naval gunship in the war.

I was a Firecontrol Technician-Gunnery 2nd Class Petty Officer (FTG-2) and a significant portion of the 25,000+ 5"-54 and 3"-50 naval artillery rounds my ship fired literally had my finger on the electrical "trigger."

One thing I've always known for sure, along with other Vietnam War vets, is we didn't lose that war, we kicked some serious Communist behind for 11 long years and then we went home.

A new book takes a look at what really happened and kicks behind on all the liberal leftwingnut lies that still persist today about how the U.S. military supposedly lost that war.
The Vietnam War was a tragic and dismal failure—at least that is what the mainstream media and history books would have you believe. Yet, Phillip Jennings sets the record straight in The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to the Vietnam War. In this latest “P.I.G.”, Jennings shatters culturally-accepted myths and busts politically incorrect lies that liberal pundits and leftist professors have been telling you for years. Bet you didn’t know that:
  • The U.S. did not lose the Vietnam War—we won it
  • The U.S. achieved our goal—we stopped the spread of Communism
  • The U.S. did not suffer significant battlefield losses
  • The cultural chaos of the 1960s and 1970s negatively influenced the Vietnam War—not vice versa
The Vietnam War was the most important—and successful—campaign to defeat Communism. Without the sacrifices made and the courage displayed by our military, the world might be a different place. The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to the Vietnam War proves the above and more as Jennings reveals the truth about the battles, players, and policies of one of the most controversial wars in U.S. history. Paperback, 256 pages
I don't need to read the book to know the facts, but maybe you weren't there and want the truth.

I hear you! I pulled the trigger for 12 hours a day, 7 days a week on the exact same ship, "The Mighty Mux" in 1972.
Hope to see you at this year's reunion.
Cheers, Woody
