Thanks for you input. I never thought of the Soldier as a weapon during my research. You know the Army tells you the soldier is the most important weapon, but they treat the lower enlisted like maggots. Therefore, I must have passed it off as nonsense at the time. I am seiously considering using this in parts of my paper. If I may, I would like to ask you for your credentials and for permission to use your thoughts and ideas in my paper. Also, I'm sure that historians view the advancement of the soldiers in this time period as a great step taken for the better meant of the US; Would you agree?
