32. The Vietnam war would have never happened ..

My uncle would probably still be living.He was drafted sent to Vietnam killed there in 1966.He was 19.They never sent his body home cause he not only was shot to death he drowned in the river.They sent his uniform home and his personal belongings.My mother and him were very close just a year apart.When I got older I would see her reading his letters from Nam and hoping this war would be over and how scared he was.He wanted to come home.My mother would read those letters and cry then she would start drinking to deal with the pain of losing him.Damn now she's gone.
