There are some striking similarities between the Vietnam Conflict and the situation in Iraq. Nicholas Ulferts is a student at The Illinois State University who writes a column for the Vidette, a school publication. It is interesting to get a youthful perspective of the questions our country faces today with the Iraq challenges. He points out how the country was wrestling with the same sort of questions over forty years ago with the Vietnam situation. My conclusion from Nick’s piece is that me must carefully consider the past as we move forward in the future.
