Many veterans, when asked, clearly state that in no uncertain terms, that is, in any head-on military engagement, this country annilated the North Vietnamese Army in pitched battles. The "Tet Offensive" despite adverse press, was in actuality an American victory. Despite high "body counts" of the enemy, more concentrated and virtually unopposed bombing of North Vietnam by U.S. 52's, President Nixon and Henry Kissenger successfully extricated the U.S. from the Vietnam War in January, 1973. Our P.O.W's were returned. But who won-the Communists or the U.S.?
