33. It's only "for naught" if people don't learn.
Just like then, people just don't listen. For many "thirty-somethings," it's ancient history and not worth the effort to understand. Too many think it's just not relevant. And if the (horror of horrors!) draft never comes back, it'll remain irrelevant.

Contrary to popular opinion, Vietnam Veterans were not really more likely to become homeless or self-medicated than their non-Veteran peers.

At the same time, Vietnam Veterans were probably in slightly better physical condition and far more experienced, on average, than those peers. That any combat veteran goes homeless is a crime. That any combat veteran goes unemployed is a crime.
