"No politician...was more effective in the anti war effort than the late Robert Kennedy. He could speak eloquently against the war to a college campus and then stun the audience with a lecture on how it was inappropriate for them to hide behind extended semesters while young men from the ghetto took their place in the killing fields... World War II was a much different kind of war than Viet Nam. The perils to America if we had done nothing were obvious to all... Nonetheless, we can take from
World War II now a lesson, and still apply it to Viet Nam. Honor those who served and especially those who did not return... "   Tom Brokaw - NBC News
