In the jungles of VietNam...there was but one enemy...little orential people dressed in black and white PJ's... wearing sandles...and termed"Gooks"...It was just that simple...
When out on patrol and you happen on a village or town...there were not liberated crowds cheering for the good old USA... waving flags and calling us HEROES...Instead...there were traps and hidden tunnels...old mamma and popasons yelling...Me No VC...Me No VC...while there child is straped to a bomb...

"The enemy in the jungle booby traped everything...they sent women and children to us with bombs taped to them or hidden in a book.....They had no regards for life and that
is what made them so dangerous....It seemed that the more we killed....the more they sent...Crude weapons and all...

The enemy was everywhere...from the people of North and South VietNam to the politicians in our great halls of justice...he was military leaders tying our hands and holding us back...the police beating people in the streets while expressing their basic right...or the National Guards
shooting and killing students on the campus's of our universities and colleges...childhood friends...brothers and sisters...aunts and uncles and moms and dads who now were strangers...Just what face was the enemies...there were so many...who could tell......

And then there were the NVA's...tough guys...hardcore...they would fight till the last...There weapons were old and crude compared to our techology..yet..they have staved off many countries and still live to fight some more .....
There use of tunnels was just simply amazing...A company or larger of gooks...traped in a village...call in Air Strikes...Cobra's...Village completly gone...move in for body count....six...not counting livestock and pets...
Everyone else...gone....Poof.....

The enemy was not just in the jungle...He was everywhere...in our streets stirring up hatered...Anti War demostrations...civil unrest...He was at the Paris Peace Accords...deceiving ambassadors and representives...He was in our Halls of Justice delaying the end of the War...Yes
the enemy was every where and wore a thousand faces...

The American solider in Nam had little support from the nation and people that sent him to that hell hole...and turned their backs on the returning vets...It has been 33 plus years later and when Nam is metioned I still see that look in their eyes...its still out there....So just what face was that of the enemy..... It was hard for the average American to tell... and impossible for a Veteran....

Wars Tome
by Gary Jacobson

Whenever on foreign soil in wars far from home,
Remember this scholarly book of war tome...
Wherever in brave battle the liberty bell has rung
Wherever heroic brave heroes have war songs sung,
A world of heroes will always,
Always die young....
And old men who have lived through wars gory hell,
Will forevermore be haunted
By deaths terrorizing knell!
