Well, respectfully, George,
I graduated hi skule in 1969. I was born with a heart condition called
Wolfe-Parkinson-White syndrome. I've never known what that was, it just
makes me sick sometimes, but a couple months after graduatation my parents
handed me a a draft card that said I was 4-F.
Good or bad I've never been there in combat. I've never been in service
of our country.....
I've never been there like our honored veterans.
I have been down to the Viet Nam Wall 1000s of times. Knowing I couldn't
I have names on that wall.
So I am stuck, in wondrin about it, what I would do about looting a body.
As a soldier which I never have been....
I was just wondrin.... What do you do....?
Your Most Obedient Servant,

Well, we certainly didn't have any qualms about doing so in the Great
Southeast Asian Sub-optimizing Experience that we are not to mention in this
group. Though I must stress we were usually looking for something to eat
other than C-rations.
I think if you've just killed someone the other stuff is of no moral
consequence (but not to be encouraged because it's bad for discipline).
