The War was difficult for us.  The aftermath was worse than we expected.  We were cultural heroes.  They did not like that.  They owned the media and used that influence to attack us.  They got us retired.  Thanks to Marine leadership, we were honorably discharged.  Marines do not take well to being pressured to dishonor their own.  But that did not stop the media from attacking us.  They tried to turn everybody against us.  Those were rough times.
