The Vietnam War is one of those things in history that I think we all have a general idea about. But, even having family members who served, I still had a lot of misconceptions coming into this expert interview.
Welcome to the Just Dumb Enough Podcast. A show that acknowledges no one is always an expert, by dispelling misconceptions with real experts.
My guest today is Robin Bartlett. Robin was a Lieutenant in the 1st Cav and completed over 50 helicopter based assaults. He shares not only his extreme experiences in combat, but also the changes in life going to Vietnam and coming back from it to a world that wasn't necessarily happy to see the troops return. He's got an excellent book out now if you're interested in more. You might notice also my extra gravely voice in this interview, I was still very sick when we recorded.
I know war topics aren't the cheeriest topics, but it's an important reminder to reach out to the people in your life who might otherwise have a very hard time feeling like they can reach out for help.
We're halfway through the last month, so here are the updated rankings: 1. The United States, still led by New York, Oregon, and South Carolina. 2. Germany. losing ground, but holding the spot. 3. Canada, rocketing up the chart thanks to all of the wonderful Ontario listeners. 4. The United Kingdom, led by England. 5. Australia, with New South Wales responsible for them staying on the list at all.
That's it for this week! Have a great week, a great weekend, and I'll see you all back here for the next episode!
