This is a great book that tells the life of a Combat Infantryman from the jungles of Vietnam to over 50 years of fighting with the V.A. The book was released before the presant V.A. scandal and shows the human side of the story.A great read for someone who wants to see the real story our soldiers have to put up with trying to get the help they need and not the media distortions. Highly recomended read

I have only just started to read this book but being a combat infantryman (67-68) with the 199th Light Infantry this book is a no nonsense no frills book about what really happened in country. It does not cover only what the media wanted you to know, a must read for all C.I.B. recipients.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I just want to thank “Dusty” Trimmer, Author, for having the courage, taking the time, and putting in words what so many of our combat
troops were not able to even talk about during and after return from Vietnam. The struggle for recovery of our Vietnam Combat Veterans
is a daily battle; PTSD, physical ailments, isolation, and the battle continues today. His story echoes the thoughts, experiences, and
feelings of so many war veterans. His enlightening and vivid description of what he experienced during Vietnam will surely help many
Vietnam Veterans realize one strong result, “it is alright to talk about Vietnam.”
This book is a “must read” for all war veterans, as well as every individual in America. It is a true picture, a mind and eye opening view
of what our Combat Troops experienced in Vietnam, and reveals a disturbing attitude of America, and what these men faced during
their return home to America.

This is an extremely well written, truthful book about the war in Nam. Some books sugarcoat or play politics in prose on what it was really like over there (especially as a combat soldier), but author Dusty Trimmer, a Bronze Star for Valor veteran, DOESN'T! I bought the book, couldn't put it down, and refer back to it from time to time (it is a coffee table kind of 'keeper' book).Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
