America reiterated Vietnam’s mistakes in Afghanistan

Defense Department leaders have assured Congress and the U.S. people that the military would study the war in Afghanistan to learn from U.S. 20-year involvement and painful exit. This will be an important exercise, but not a new one.

Many lessons from Afghanistan reflect those from Vietnam. This time, we owe it to our struggling sons and daughters not only to identify the experiences of failure, but also to integrate them into our military so that they are not repeated.
