My answer to If you are wrong, do you apologise or ignore it?
Answer by Ken Larson:
The extent to which one was wrong is a driving factor. Here is the biggest apology I have ever made – mostly to myself and to those with whom I worked for 3 decades:
“ROSE COVERED GLASSES”
“I am a 2 tour Vietnam Veteran who recently retired after 36 misguided years working in the defense industrial complex on many of the weapons systems being used by our forces as we speak. Given a clearly defined mission and the best armaments and systems in the world, I believed that another Vietnam could be avoided for the American Soldier.
I was wrong.”
