As a Vietnam Veteran, I think the Burns/Novick fell short of the mark. They showed some of the corruption, but they only scratched the surface! Let’s not forget that Sgt. Major William O. Wooldridge, the top NCO in Vietnam, and the DOJ reached an agreement whereby Wooldridge pleaded guilty to accepting stock equity from a corporation engaged in providing merchandise to the non-commissioned officers’ clubs in Vietnam. He was at the top of the pyramid. This needs more investigation as does the sheer amount of material that was “liberated” from Military Supply depots throughout Vietnam.
One of the reasons the war went on so long is that there was easy money to be made and quick promotions to be had.
