The Vietnam War: Ken Burns documentary

Just curious how many others watched this documentary and if they had opinions. I love history, but honestly didn't know alot about Vietnam. I'm 47, and we simply didn't learn about it in school. When I went to college I took some elective history courses about WWII, but don't remember if they even offered courses about Vietnam. It was amazing to see the US make the same mistakes the French had made before us. And disheartening to see how corrupt our political leaders were, all for the sake of keeping their jobs. I have an uncle who was a Marine in Vietnam, who I've never heard mention his time over there. In fact, I can remember growing up that the adults would always make a point of telling us not to ask him about the war.
