Is there any reason to require that these "unique, unseen details' be true, or are good intentions enough? For example, Al Mills is given this platform to tell us he "manned the US aircraft carrier". The US Navy had perhaps 20 operational aircraft carriers during the Vietnam War. Which one did he "man"? Do sailors describe their service that way? I've always heard them say they "served" or "sailed" on a ship, and then always mention the ship's name. Mr. Mills then tells us he served in both the "Vietnam Army and Navy". Leaving aside the odd phrasing for a Vietnam veteran to use, is this correct? Not impossible to have served in both branches during the war, but highly unusual.

So what is the purpose of this journalistic undertaking? Can it be even called journalism?
