Appy went and asked people from _All Sides_ what they did in the American Viet war. The types mentioned in the The following two items stand out in my mind. 1) One can read of the 15yo girl (pioneer path worker?) keeping the Ho Chi Minh trail open. Her team worked long hours and she fell asleep - walked deep into thicket - took team hour to get her out. 2) Also the Dr that walked this trail for 3 months, 11 days to become district supervisor in the south, because the previous one had been apointed by the American Lackey Puppet Government. __Appy is to be commended__ for this effort. There still is a lack of material on what the Vietnamese did and thought, about this war.
