25. Yeah,

the Russians had their hands in both the Korean war and the Vietnam war...
but most direct help (soldiers and weapons) was from china in vietnam, was it not? I know the Russians definitely helped with technical support .. logistics and training .. that sort of thing.. but physical troop involvement was way lower than in korea.
In the Korean war a lot of Chinese and russians came and fought for the north Koreans because a lot of Koreans had helped the communists with their revolution inside china.

sorry ya had to go over there..

my step dad was in the artillery and had to witness misfire/backfires that killed buddies of his on a couple of occasions.. and from his description of events the military was pretty heartless when addressing said events occurring..

but he does have some fond memories of supposedly shooting back and forth with our navy for fun :p
