    Today is the 50th anniversary of the My Lai Massacre, when US soldiers raped and murdered 500 Vietnamese civilians and burned their homes. Hugh Thompson and his flight crew stopped the massacre by blocking American soldiers and threatening to kill them, saving countless lives.

    For this, he was denounced as a traitor and spent much of his life suffering from depression, PTSD, and nightmares. He died in 2006. Today he represents the importance of disobeying orders and enduring the hate of the public for doing what’s right. I wish we had more of him.

  5. You should watch the PBS series on Vietnam. It’s quite a history lesson and extremely well done. Ken Burns of course!
