I could fly over South Vietnam the year before and see all the little skirmishes going on, including sometimes American soldiers and marines, and flying American airplanes, but they were really “noncombatants.” I could see all of this thing. I said, “Listen, if we come over here, we’re supposed to be up here looking for MIGs. They’re not going to fly a MIG down here over South Vietnam, and it’s just foolish because they don’t have enough planes to do what you do if you wanted to get involved in one of these hassles.” You could see three wars going on at almost any time below you. You would see lines of firing men firing at each other. You go 50 or 100 miles on and there’s another one going on. South Vietnam was alive with ammunition expenditure.
