    Good vietnam book

    This book is a lot different than a lot of movies and other books about the Vietnam War. The author paints a picture of very well-trained and disciplined soldiers which is not always the case when speaking of the Vietnam War. Wish there was more about sniper missions but I guess when you're telling a true story there's only so much you can do. A very good read.

    John Culbertson takes each reader on an action-packed step by step trip through the Arizona Territory in 1967 Viet-nam

    A must read book. Filled with plenty of combat action of the 5th marines in Viet-Nam in 1967. Read as John takes you from the combat bases of the fighting 2/5 marines into the valleys and rice paddies filled with death and destruction. John starts out as a green marine, new in-country and unaware of what is ahead of him, and he takes you day by day into the killing fields of I corps as he becomes a battle hardened veteran and a Marine Scout Sniper. You will not be able to put the book down. Thanks to John for telling it like it was during a time when our government and our own countrymen were blind to the truth.

    What it meant to be a Marine grunt in the Arizonia

    It was interesting reading about places that I have been and Marines that I knew. The author gives an insightful account about running patrols in the Arizona. He gives you more than fact, as he conveys the intensity of the many emotions created by being in a heavily booby trapped and NVA controlled area. The book gives you the true sense of what it was like in a western with An Hoa as Fort Apache and 2/5 the cavalry. His description of the incidents are well presented. While the book may never be called great literature, it presents an honest portrayl of what it meant being a grunt in the Arizona. I recommend it to anyone who wishes to truly understand. Well done Culbertson 'you got it right'.
