We remember Lamar Williams, Jimi Hendrix, and Jim Croce, but do you remember any other musicians that were veterans?

Not shocking at all, lots of hippies were vets. Look at Country Joe, flat out anti-war vet. How many people decided Vietnam was a sick joke because of Fixin To Die Rag? How many soldiers in Vietnam came back pissed off about that colossal c-f*ck? Reserves still qualifies garcia as a vet tho - in reserves your life belongs to Uncle Sam so it is a huge sacrifice to be there available for call up.

I had no idea Coltrane was in navy in Vietnam? really? During those years he was gigging constantly. That cant be right. Maybe earlier?

Didn't have to, he's still considered a Vietnam era vet, same as the guys in Quartermaster Corps that never went overseas.

Grunts got tired of seeing troops getting killed to "take a hill/village" and then see the choppers come in and take everybody back.
Pilots got tired of being shot at and then told "let me check if you can return fire". My brother told me about how in the late 60's ( AF communications) that many times the request had to go to the State dept and several embassies before the order to release weapons came back-while the pilot was being shot at.
Too many times too many soldiers died to take back ground they had held and gave back.
Political considerations were more important than lives back then I guess. Big body counts were the thing.
