    Best book of the series

    Whoa talk about a great expereince! The Six Silent Men Three book series is one of the best Oral Histories of the Lurps/Rangers in Viet-Nam!! Rey Martinez starts us off with the 'Old Foul Dudes' Ken Miller keeps it and moves us right from the L.R.P.s to the L.R.R.P.s and Gary Linderer tells the Rangers tales. Gary Linderer is an excellent author who brings these stories so life like, you almost duck when the shooting starts. You should read this alone so no one thinks your a nut when you start cheering for the good guys, and crying when some of them dont make it. I've read lots of books about Viet-Nam and this is one of the best. Written by one of the most outstanding men I have every met. Gary Linderer is a true American.

    Made up military awards and war stories

    The following is stated on the cover of Gary Linderer's books: "Gary A. Linderer is the publisher of `Behind the Lines,' a magazine that specializes in U.S. military special operations. In Vietnam, he earned two Silver Stars, the Bronze Star with V device (for Valor), the Army Commendation Medal with V device, and two Purple Hearts. His first two books were selected by the Military Book Club." <BR/><BR/>Gary Linderer has consistently claimed to have earned two Silver Stars and two Purple Hearts, all for the same day's combat in Vietnam, on 20 November 1968. He used these high honors to enhance his professional reputation and credibility as an author and his fitness to be consulted as an expert on LRP operations. Records I obtained in 2000 by FOIA request from the National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis, MO., refute Mr. Linderer's claims of two Silver Stars and two Purple Hearts for the same day's combat actions of 20 November 1968. Because Mr. Linderer has lied about his medals, according to the NPRC records, then readers have to view everything Mr. Linderer writes in his book with a skeptical eye. The text of Linderer's NPRC record is as follows: <BR/><BR/>National Personnel Records Center Military Personnel Records <BR/>9700 Page Avenue, St. Louis, Missouri 63132-5100 <BR/>OFFICIAL LIST OF AWARDS The Official Military Records of GARY A. LINDERER [SSN removed] show that he is authorized the following awards and decorations for his service in the US Army: <BR/><BR/>SILVER STAR <BR/>BRONZE STAR MEDAL W/FIRST OAK LEAF CLUSTER AND "V" ARMY COMMENDATION MEDAL <BR/>W/FIRST OAK LEAF CLUSTER AIR MEDAL <BR/>GOOD CONDUCT MEDAL NATIONAL DEFENSE <BR/>SERVICE MEDAL <BR/>VIETNAM SERVICE MEDAL W/4 BRONZE SERVICE STARS <BR/>COMBAT INFANTRYMAN BADGE <BR/>REPUBLIC OF VIETNAM CAMPAIGN RIBBON W/DEVICE (1960) <BR/>REPUBLIC OF VIETNAM GALLANTRY CROSS W/PALM UNIT CITATION BADGE SHARPSHOOTER <BR/>BADGE W/RIFLE & MACHINE GUN BARS EXPERT BADGE W/AUTO RIFLE BAR <BR/>////////NOTHING FOLLOWS///////////// <BR/>R.

    The effect of Vietnam.

    This book is about many topics. To understand this book and what the author is telling you about, you have to know understand the Vietnam war and how it was fought. In the book it talked about the training for the 101st LRRP teams. In other chapters it talked about some of the missions that some LRRP teams went on. Most of the chapters were different because they were about other patrol teams. What I liked about the book was that it was about an interest of mine and it taught me more about the sacrifices made in the Vietnam war. What I didn't like about the book was all the military classifications. It's hard to know what they are talking about when there are just letters and numbers. Other then that I really enjoyed this book and would highly recommend this book.
