Overview

Army chaplain, Sam Hopkins, shares his inspiring personal experiences and an enlightening personal photographic history of the Vietnam War. A Chaplain Remembers Vietnam is an illuminating look into the daily life of a clergyman during wartime. Sam Hopkins illustrates the stark contrast he saw between the horrors of war and the powerful beauty of the Vietnam countryside.

Sam Hopkins served in Vietnam from 1967 to 1968 with the 4th Battalion 60th Artillery unit, know as the "duster" unit. His memoir is not a complete history of the Vietnam War. Rather, it is just one straightforward account from one man, a chaplain in Vietnam. A Chaplain Remembers Vietnam features over 80 full-page photos. Armed with just a Kodak Instamatic camera, Sam Hopkins captured the beauty of Vietnam juxtaposed with the ravages of war.

A Chaplain Remembers Vietnam presents an honest, refreshing perspective on Vietnam. Sam Hopkins' writings share both his positive and his painful experiences, while maintaining deserved respect for those who sacrificed so much. Form the Author

From 1966 to 1968, I was privileged to serve with 800 men who were called upon by our country to go to Vietnam and fight against a dedicated and deadly foe. We formed a new unit together, trained for six months together, shipped out together, served our tour of duty together, and came home together. Togetherness is the main theme of our unit's wartime experiences.

My unit's veterans celebrate these precious bonds to this very day, especially our affections for our former fallen buddies and their surviving families. The National Dusters, Quads, and Searchlight Association actively supports the American Gold Star Mothers, an organization for women who lost their sons in combat. Proceeds from sales of this book will be donated to projects and services that will benefit these ladies. May God add His blessings to these enterprises.

    Excellent Narrative and Pictorial Book

    Excellently Written and Pictorial Vietnam War Narrative, February 9, 2003 Reviewer: Franklin D. Rast, author: Don's Nam, Ghosts In The Wire, and Bayou Samurai from Baton Rouge, LA USA An honest, ground-level, and poignant true story of an Army chaplain, Colonel Sam Hopkins, who served with one of the most highly decorated units of the Vietnam war---4th Battalion, 60th Artillery (Dusters). This plainspoken book is highly recommended because it contains none of the vulgarism, horrors, and often John Wayne bravado depicted in many war narratives. Armed with only a Bible and Kodak Instamatic camera, Hopkins takes the reader on a somber, yet at times humerous, journey into the Vietnam war and the lives of the young American soldiers who fought there; faithfully reminding them time and again, that their frail lives belonged to a higher authority---to "Supreme Six," the Army's slang for God. His feelings, doubts, and fears, before, during, and after the war so clearly presented give this book an unequivocal place in Vietnam war literature.
