Unformatted text preview: WW-II was fought against an enemy that was very well trained, uniformed and a well equipped military. We knew who our enemy was because they wore a distinct uniform and was supported by identifiable marking. In WW-II you could looking on a map and know where the front lines were with no trouble. Back home the America people know what their love one were fighting for and understood the price that may have to pay. Vietnam was unlike any war we have been in our short history. Most of the enemy didn’t have a uniform or anything that you could easily identifiable them with and from the time you set foot in Vietnam you were never sure where the enemy was or how many because they used the jungle and local villages to infuse themselves into the area, making war on their terms. The Vietcong force never truly met the US Forces head on often. http://vietnamexp.com/morestories/dean1.htm...
