Just what were they doing all this time in the jungle, they were not fighting and they made no attempt to attack any place or any one. I are you trying to tell me that they never once met or spoke to any one else apart from them selfs in the Jungle. If you were in the jungle and at war one of the first questions you would ask if you met any one would be "How is the war going, who's winning". Well they must have heard that the war was over and that country had not been looted or pillaged by the Americans,, so why not go home. The idea that crosses my mind is that these men were deserters and were frightened to return home.
