As a Vietnam veteran I was thoroughly disgusted and repulsed by the comments contained in the Jan. 12 letter, "If you wage war, accept the horrors." I seriously doubt that during basic military training the letter writer was taught, "at each house encountered, throw in a couple of hand grenades and spray the insides regardless of who was in the room." Where did he receive that training?
Whether or not he chooses to admit it there are good among the bad, innocents among the guilty. His barbaric and inhumane ideas are the epitome of "the ugly American."
