Sadly My Lai was but one of many incidents.
I will confess to reading not more than a few of the posts in this thread, mainly for the statement above. I spent my tour of duty in the Pentagon in the Chief of Staff Communications center from Spring '67 to Dec, '69. It was a 24/7 operation and every bit of correspondence coming in to the US Government from anywhere in the world came through us. I had as many levels of TS security clearance as you could have at the time, so there was virtually nothing that I could not be exposed to or access. As Digger has pointed out, My Lai was but the tip of the iceberg. And it wasn't just Vietnam. I read about things that you wouldn't believe from all over the world. My debrief on discharge was basically, "STFU for 6 months".
Love my Dot and my Wildkat, too, but I'm really diggin' my Casino!!!
