To the editor:
LBJ, one of the 4 worst presidents of last century, said this in reference to the Vietnam War to the Joint Chief of Staff at a Christmas Party in 1963! and I quote: “Just get me elected, and then you can have your war.” JFK stated, before he was assassinated and I, firmly, believe JFK’s assassination was masterminded by LBJ, this phrase: “[When we pull out] of Vietnam in 1965: I’ll be damned everywhere as a communist appeaser. But, I don’t care. If I tried to pull out completely now from Vietnam, we would have a Joe McCarthy red scare on our hands, but I can do it after I’m reelected. So we had better make damned sure that I’m reelected.” The source used for these tidbits of info comes from the very best book that I have ever read about JFK’s assassination, “LBJ, the Mastermind of the JFK assassination.”
I was troop shipped on a 23-day voyage in the spring of 1965, and LBJ was the culprit—our commander-in-chief, no less! I, even to this day, remember my time wasted there. Had only JFK lived, this story would never have seen the light of day. However, LBJ ascended to the presidency and I dutifully went. LBJ had his war, and me and over 2 million other young men, who were just mostly poorly paid just like me, am still there, mentally, not physically. In fact, Vietnam and the 23-day “cruise” that I took me there, are still with me! Proud to serve which was a phrase that I used to maintain my sanity. Too bad it didn’t work!
