Very good reading for anyone who is a veteran of the Vietman War and also for anyone living with a veteran of that era.

I originally purchased this for my husband, a Vietnam veteran who has suffered from PTSD and other after effects of the war for 40 years. My husband found this book very accurate in portraying what it was like to serve in Vietnam. Some parts brought back memories for him of horrible times, and others brought back great memories of fellow soldiers. He highly recommends this to anyone who served in Vietman.

Not what I expected

Less about what it is like to go to war which is really what I was hoping to get some incite on and more of his philosophy of what it should be.

    I am amazed at the courage it took to write this book. Those who have experienced the depth of this man's military experience, either by serving the country in a war or by serving people in other extraordinary ways, will relate to the meaning of this book and be impacted by its message. It requires deep and thoughtful reading.
