To the editors:

Congratulations on the wonderful article by Larry Rand, "How I Lost the Vietnam War" [June 26]. I saw the comment by your reader who considered it an insult to the men who fought over there. I don't understand why it is not obvious that people who objected to the war did not want our soldiers over there getting killed; they were on the same side.

The article had the convincing ring of truth. I will read it again and keep it. Thanks for publishing it.
