This book is the real story of my personal experience in Vietnam. Contrary to popular belief, it was not a war of two countries fighting one another. It was written to expose the racial issues in Vietnam that you never saw on the evening news. I feared for my life every day, not from the Viet Cong. I had to watch my back 24-7 from men who wore the same uniform as me. At first, it made me bitter. I failed to find any connection between the racial tensions in the USA and black troops serving in Vietnam. How could I be held responsible for the conduct of other people more than 10,000 miles from me, people I had never even met? Later I realized that Vietnam made me stronger as well as mistrustful. I felt free in Vietnam; I could go anyplace I wanted without any fear whatsoever. I was called "soul brother" and told almost daily that the Vietnamese and black people had the same enemy. I have to admit, they did have a point. My conscious is clear, I never harmed anyone in Vietnam and God is my witness!
