What Happened 40 Years Ago This Weekend?

In the news there has been a lot of talk about the anniversary of Woodstock. What was Woodstock and why is it worth celebrating it's anniversary? Woodstock was a 4 day open air concert that degenerated into a drugged and drunken, muddy orgy. Here is something to keep in mind while elderly hippies are reminiscing, over those same four days some eight thousand miles away 109 of our soldiers lost their lives fighting in Vietnam.

I hadn't thought of that, but it's true. And the sacrifice of those soldiers was worth a lot more than the orgy of Woodstock.
