Please End Dishonorable and Undeclared War

Files

In a brief note to Senator Bayh, a Bloomington, Indiana resident does not mince words. Pleading for an end to the conflict, the constituent summarizes the current situation, "This dishonorable and undeclared war is laying waste the Vietnamese countryside and decimating its population, without measurably contributing to our international objectives. Here at home, the noble aims of the Great Society are increasingly sacrificed to a voracious war machine."
