Transcript Prof tells it like it was • • • class down and tell them only sound political science answers would be accepted on the test, anything else and they'd fail. The students belonged to a Black Militant group, and they would often blame all societies ills on the racist white supremacy attitude that prevailed at the time. Students, although concerned with civil rights, were more concerned about the war. Returning vets found a different America. Home towns, friends and neighbors felt differently about them, especially after having seen the killing on TV. Carp remembers how you could tell the vets from the average students, "some had nervous problems, others were physically handicapped." The Invisible Soldiers, from an invisible war," were even more recognizable than that. They were the ones that did not have that "glint" of life in their eyes, or the spring of youth in their step." "I remember it was December the 23rd," said Carp, "and I was on my way out for Christmas break when the phone rang before I could get out of the office. Not wanting to answer it, I picked it up and the frantic voice on the other end of the line was one of my male students I'd given an incomplete to. He said he was going to be reclasified as A- 1 and drafted because of the incomplete. He was scared, and with good reason, he could be shipped to Viet Nam. We resolved his problem and he retained his college deferment, but he almost went." Carp points out that not many were as lucky as this one student. These were not easy times for anyone. Everyone had a battle to fight even if you didn't want to, which many didn't. Today we have no war, no real causes and no real reason to get involved in the areas of the world that do not affect us directly. Most people on campus today do not remember the pain and agony of the 60's and 70's. But, with several of that era's music groups experiencing a revival of sorts, and movies, and TV bringing that time to life again, we might be able to heal some of those wounds. We as a nation are survivors, and as survivors we owe it to ourselves to prevent war, of any form, from scaring us or our world again. ► Mike Price, A Veteran of The Vietnam Conflict ^ A Prof. Carp — 1989 *Tm shipping out this weekend for Viet Nam, I got my orders last week.*' "Where is this place? I've never heard of it!** "It's in Southeast Asia, next to China. Mom I've only got a year tour, then I can come hornet** "Isn't that the same thing little Tommy Crammer told his mom before he left?
