Interesting Not not long after comming back from Nam 3-4 of my squad, myself included, were approched outside Ft Hood by people serching for mercs to protect Rodesian plantations. This was back in 72 and I was all fine with not signing on. Even though the money was huge, they were offering 1200 per week back when you could buy a new car for 2500, It was tempting to be sure, but we all passed. To bad all of these efforts couldn't be put to better use, imagine if all these efforts and $ expended had been used for good instead of greed. I'm sure things would be much different now. Who knows, there's always a wanta be dictator/ war lords or what ever learking around just below the surface.
