ALLEN LYNCH, THEN SERGEANT
1st Cavalry Division United States ArmyVietnam 1967-1968
"WE WON THE TET OFFENSIVE. We decimated the Viet Cong. And our wonderful press made us losers. It was right at that point in time, I think, that the press fully turned on the war in Vietnam and started not necessarily generating news, but generating opinions. Because WE DECIMATED THE VIET CONG during Tet. We decimated the North Vietnamese Army during Tet. Had we pressed the advantage the turnout would have been different. But when you are fighting a war based on politics, stuff happens."
