From cooks ...
From cooks and correspondents to clerks and comptrollers, DEROS Vietnam distills the essence of life for soldiers in the rear during the war and, later, back home in a divided America. Vietnam veteran Doug Bradley, a former Army journalist who served in the air-conditioned jungle at U. S. Army Headquarters near Saigon in 1970-71, tells these compelling stories with wit, intensity, and empathy. In doing so, he provides a gateway to a Vietnam experience that has been largely ignored and whose reverberations still echo across America.

This is a great book for anyone looking more a more personal, intimate view of the experiences of the Viet Nam veterans far from the front lines. The stories may not be as dramatic, horrific, and heroic as those in daily combat, but they are equally compelling in a very different way. A must read for both Viet Nam vets and for those who were fortunate enough to have missed the war, but are continually trying to better understand the toll it took on all those who did march into the jungle.Was this review helpful?
