Overview

To paraphrase an old speech from an assassinated president: "Ask not what your country can do for you...just get your butt out there and sacrifice." This is a tale of a young lad, named Bobby Murphy, who did just that. As soon as he reached that magic number of eighteen, when all boys become men, he beat feet to the recruiting station and inked his way into the United States Marine Corps! That was his first mistake. His second was to be shipped off to Vietnam, where he was introduced to the vagaries of guerrilla warfare. The enemy be the civilians and the civilians be the enemy. Kiddies to oldsters, each can...and will...blow you away. Toss in racial tensions between black and white soldiers-only to be kicked into overdrive by the murder of Martin Luther King.

This book is AWESOME! It moves fast enough to make you want to keep reading to see what's around the corner. I felt like I was right there beside the main character meeting some of the folks he did and seeing some of the stuff he saw. It will hold your attention throughout and break your heart in some places. A must read for all Vietnam Vets - Semper Fi and Welcome Home Brothers!
