This Day in the History of Finding a Better General

On this day in 1968, President Lyndon Johnson replaced General Westmoreland with General Creighton Abrams as the general in charge in Vietnam. Abrams changed some tactics and did good; and we were able in early 1972 to remove all our troops who actually fought without the ARVN collapsing. The Democrats in Congress had to pass laws designed to disarm the ARVN in order to make it lose to an NVA blitzkrieg three years after that.
