Wow. An end of an era.
One of the major thrusts of our initially underfunded, problematical publishing venture was giving my fellow Vietnam veterans, whose spilled blood was just as red as those who sacrificed in Korea, WWII, WWI, and previous wars, recognition for the battles they fought, the sacrifices they made while tangling with the forces of communist tyrants. Certainly we succeeded, much to the consternation of the liberal hacks and dishonest cowards who continue to babble about a “…guerrilla war conducted by oppressed peasants.” And who refuse, even now, to admit the fact that the North Vietnamese invasion of South Viet Nam, with divisions of armor, was no different than the Nazi invasion of Poland or France.
It was the only place– The. Only. Place.– where interested parties could keep up with global military affairs of a certain type and developments in small arms. Rhodesia, El Salvador, Afghanistan, South-West Africa, SOF covered them all. The advent of the Glock and the Galil both broke there, as did the M16A2.

Oh, and thanks to MDL for the tip.
