Ahhhhhhhh yes REDgum...the album this was off (Caught in the Act)was a big part of my teenage years and they should be commended for this song, it was written after their meetings with many veterans in the early 80s here when there was little to no recognition for what the effects of that war had been.

That said the RED in Redgum was for Marxism/Socialism and they were "politically active" in most leftist movements here from the mid 70s to the mid 80s.

Yes, it did. No worse than what came before Nam, or after. I admire the courage of those that served later in the Gulf and up to today, still. IED's and multiple deployments would scare the shit out of me.
Too damn hot in both!
