Overview

On August 7, 1969, when I and a half dozen other soldiers were cut off from other friendly forces and were nearly out of ammunition in a desperate fight with a much larger force of North Vietnamese regulars, I was not surprised to see Ross among the few who risked their lives to come to our assistance. Less than three months later Ross fell mortally wounded in still another battle.

Overview

On August 7, 1969, when I and a half dozen other soldiers were cut off from other friendly forces and were nearly out of ammunition in a desperate fight with a much larger force of North Vietnamese regulars, I was not surprised to see Ross among the few who risked their lives to come to our assistance. Less than three months later Ross fell mortally wounded in still another battle. Karen [Epp's] work to document her brother's life and death is a unique effort that contributes to the full story of a long, controversial war that still has major impact on our country today. It is a tribute to not only Stan and Karen's family, but also to all veterans.

My gratitude to my brother and those brave service men and women can never be expressed in words. Stan and those like him still live on in our hearts. His courage should inspire all of us to do a better job of living.

    Touching tale of a soldier

    It is one thing to hear people talk about what they remember during the Vietnam War, but to be able to read the personal letters sent home by one honorable soldier gives the sacrafice a new meaning. I leaned about Vietnam in history classes and documentaries, but this book is an original collection of experiences that gives the war a new face of young men barely old enough to be out of high school, yet fighting for our country. Stan Ross was a wholesome kid from the midwest, who gave up everything for this country. I am proud to have read this book, and thank you to the Ross family for sharing such intimate letters and pictures of your brother and son. The week after I finished this book I was in Washington, D.C. and paid my respects to Stanley Ross, W17 Line 98, forever honored in black marble.
