From Vietnam to Desert Storm and the battlefields of Afghanistan and Iraq, the soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines of America have gone into harm's way to defend and protect the United States. Vietnam and Other Heartaches provides a stark picture of what they must endure in the hell on earth that is combat.
Author Peter C. Fraser is a Green Beret and a proud American who volunteered for military service in 1965, serving in Vietnam for two years. The poems featured in Vietnam and Other Heartaches include original verse Fraser composed while he was in Vietnam. Some of the poems were written after his service ended in Vietnam and during a career that spanned thirty years of service. This included deployment in Desert Storm in 1991 and in support of operations in Central America. His writing during from his service gives the reader a unique insight into the lasting horror and stress of overseas combat.
Fraser's poetry offers a startling insight into the reality of war and artfully expresses what American soldiers have faced in the past and in the present. Vietnam and Other Heartaches serve as a reminder to all Americans to remember and respect the brave young men and women serving their country.
