One of my favorite shows to watch is documentaries. I especially enjoy watching videos from History Channel, National Geographic and Animal Planet..Last night I watched a series of History Channel videos on the Vietnam war. These documentaries were so well done that you almost felt that you were right there with the American soldiers. As a Canadian I was not directly affected by the war in Vietnam. I was in no danger of being drafted although I would have been of draft age at the time. However, I watched the nightly news during these years and often wondered how my life would have been if I had been an American drafted into war service. From what I could see in these History Channel videos fighting n Vietnam would have been a horrible experience. I wondered how the soldiers must have felt when they realized that victory in Vietnam would be next to impossible. In the last years of the war a majority of people were opposed to the war and wanted the troops brought home.
