Mullen's son died in Vietnam in1970 in a friendly fire incident. Mullen tries to find out the circumstances of her son's death, but, not surprisingly, the military is not very cooperative. This book is her personal story about that experience and her subsequent antiwar activities.Her story is also told in the 'Friendly Fire' by Courty Byron, although Mullen does have problems with that authors viewpoint.
