Title: "I Tested Eskimos For Uncle Sam"
I was in the Army during the Vietnam War. What did I do when the war was on? I gave intelligence tests to Eskimos. From February 1972 to August 1973 I ran the testing department of the induction center in Anchorage, Alaska. Being Alaska, many of the people I tested were Eskimos. So that was my Vietnam experience: testing Eskimos.
Incidentally, during the time that I was in Alaska, even the Eskimos were calling themselves "Eskimos." Having lived in Alaska I can tell you that there really are offensive terms for Eskimos, and "Eskimo" is not one of them.
