  2. "I Ain't Got No Quarrel With The VietCong... No VietCong Ever Called Me ******"

    "When the world meekly protested against the dying and killing of an unworthy war …. Jane Fonda was the first person of notoriety to stand up and say, “I hear you!” She was the first Vietnam-era Hero. Perhaps the only one. Without her contribution the war might still be raging on." ...
