Fear of losing Nancy results in a failing grade on a final exam, terminates his career plans, and all but guarantees a fast-track deployment to Vietnam. A fellow petty officer's involvement with dealing drugs gets the man killed, dumps his six-month-old baby girl into Ruben and Nancy's care, and puts the three of them in the crosshairs of a cartel's minions.
Orders to join a Marine combat unit in South Vietnam force him to leave Nancy and the baby for a one-year tour, brutally shortened by life-threatening wounds when Ruben heroically rescues his best friend from a downed, burning helicopter.
Don't Tell Me is a story of compounding errors and misunderstandings whose disastrous consequences can be overcome only by those who are truly in love forever
