One of them got out of the delivery van and forgot to put it into Park. Of course the truck drifted into my 1968 Chevelle SS convertible!
After that one was fixed, the second one was driving a forklift with a jet engine in a can (forward so he couldn't see where he was going through the engine can) and you'd never guess who's 1968 Chevelle SS convertible he hit.
The third guy was actually pretty smart. He didn't want to go to Viet Nam, and he didn't want to serve four years in the Navy or Air Force to get out of being cannon fodder. The Idiot Program allowed him to enlist for two years with no possibility of re-enlisting, and no Viet Nam deployment (Navy).
I was not a fan of McNamara. I did not and do not believe it's a smart move to put an accountant in charge of our military forces. He tried to micromanage so much that our shipboard commanders finally had to resort to sending "Unless otherwise directed I intend to fire a salvo of 45 rounds of 8 inch naval gunfire at co-ordinates ####### at 0145Z." These messages would be sent minutes prior to providing gunfire support to comply with the requirements to get permission to fire, but not be too late to help the troops.
I'll never understand how this man's ego let him believe that he knew more about military tactics than graduates of West Point and Annapolis.
He was a mandarin. A Darwinian superman. A walking bag of super-duper DNA, radiating brainpower like a nuclear reactor.
Didn't you get the memo?
“I’ll never understand how this man’s ego let him believe that he knew more about military tactics than graduates of West Point and Annapolis.”
Tying the hands of the military while escalating the war will be LBJ and McNamara’s legacy! My husband a Nam vet will never forgive those two for what they did! May they both rot in he!!.
I was talking to a retired Marine Corps Gunny last week and I guess the Crotch has as many problems as we did.
