Jane McCarthy, Vietnam Veteran

At that time people were protesting the war, but I couldn't quite do that. I didn't think that would be effective. I wasn't in favor of the war. I didn't understand the war. I couldn't understand why we were there, but I thought I was going to be a nurse soon within the year, and I thought what more purpose could there be except to go and take care of our soldiers or my friends that were forced to go into the Army, go into the military, and go over there and kill people or be killed or injured.
