I am 35 and a military historian. I have studied S.E. Asian culture and the millitary history of Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam. My views are opinions are just that....opinions. My studies have been extensive. I have many friends who are also veterans of the U.S. Millitary, Vand Pao's Hmong army, and civilians who lived through the American involvement in Vietnam's civil war. I also study Vietnamese history at Yale. I also do an unhealthy amount of reading on the subject.
I tried to start a little conversation on the subject in the forum but I did not get much feedback. I hope to see topics related to S.E. Asian history on this forum in the future.
