I was in around the same time as you were. Some of this BS was going on even then. We were medevacing the wounded from the Marine Barracks bombing
in Lebanon. We kept getting ground fire from a building and were not allowed to shoot back. They took our ammo away so that we couldn't shoot back.
We couldn't even carry side arms. It turned out that the fire was coming from a hotel. The PLO was raising funds by creating package tours for rich
European punks. For so much money they could get drugs, sex, booze and a weapon to kill people. They were the ones shooting at us. Our State
Department didn't want us killing or wounding them.
