In his letter of Oct. 31, Bud Farley states "that National Guard service was not a way to avoid service in Vietnam."

The following is a quote from the Army National Guard's Web site: "President Lyndon Johnson made the fateful political decision not to mobilize the Reserves to fight the Vietnam War, but to rely on the draft instead. But when the bombshell of the Viet Cong Tet Offensive struck in 1968, 34 Army National Guard units found themselves alerted for active duty, eight of which served in South Vietnam."

That's is eight out of hundreds!

Did George Bush Sr. know that the Tet Offensive was coming and tell his son George W. to get in on it?

This is not very important to me, but it seemed to be to Mr. Farley.
