I have read hundreds of factual and fictional books about our nations wars, with a special focus on Vietnam. Brads' book has that indelible ring of truth that I have found in the best.

The reading provides an authentic account of a soldier's Vietnam horrific experience and struggle to re-enter mainstream life. The book is written with raw emotion and leaves the reader questioning the rationale for war. I strongly recommend the book.

I think Mr. Curtis's book does an excellent job of explaining how it felt to be in an unpopular war, what it was like to come home and be harrassed by those who did not support the war, and how the lack of support at home can cause devistating effects to the men and women who were brave enough to put their lives on the line to keep our country free.

This was an outstanding book! I couldn't put it down until I finished it. I am a college student, w/a concentration in History for 2ndary education. This was the first book I could read about Vietnam. I was a teenager during that time, and my family and I were for the boys fighting this war. The ones who acted like true Americans were not. They spit on our returning boys, and gave them NO repect for fighting to protect our way of life. The V A hospitals should be the best to accomodate our 'boys' from wars. Unfortunately, they are towards the bottom of the list. I was incredibly close to a man that did his service in Vietnam. He still can't talk about it. I have never pushed him. I know he'll talk about it when he can. He has nightmares, flashbacks, and such a tremendous depression. He is under a Dr.'s care now. None of this started until he came back from Vietnam. These 'boys' now men, deserve all of our respect and admiration for fighting for our country when it wasn't popular. THEY ARE THE TRUE AMERICANS! Brad Curtis, Thank you sir for serving our country!!!

I was a teen ager when the Vietnam war was going on. I remember it vividly! I remember the hatred of some of the 'so called Americans.' I was very close to someone that served in Vietnam. He was hit in the head with a beer bottle when he got back to San Francisco from a 'so-called American'. My uncle did 3 tours in Vietnam. He will talk about the first two, but not the last tour. The person I was very close to had/has nightmares, and flashbacks, and a LOT of Heavy Depression. This all started when he got back from Vietnam. ANYONE who says this book is a piece of trash has the right to say it, but that is just their opinion and it doesn't make it true!!! Remember please that these 'boys' were fighting because our government called them up. THEY ARE THE TRUE AMERICANS!!!!!! THERE ARE SO MANY NOW THAT ARE HOMELESS, AND HAVE SO MANY PROBLEMS CAUSED FROM BEING IN THAT HORRIBLE WAR!!!! This was an excellent book!!!!! I couldn't put it down until I read it all. It was the first book I've been able to read about Vietnam. I am a junior in college to be a High School World History Teacher. This book will come in so handy when I tell my students about Vietnam. Who knows, maybe my uncle, or Mr. Brad Curtis himself could come and speak to my classes. I am very proud of our men and women fighting now! I am so glad our country treats them so well when they come home. Too bad most of our country treated the Vietnam Vets w/no respect, courtesy, or admiration. Makes me think they would have burnt their draft cards, also. A Native American saying, 'Don't down someone until you have walked a mile in their moccasins' is so true. GOD BLESS OUR VETERANS FROM ALL WARS & GOD BLESS THE U S A Rhonda

The men who went to Nam were just kids when they left. Most were treated like crap when they returned to the United States, and many were not able to lead a productive life afterwords. In this book, Brad gives a realistic view of what actually took place in the lives of men who served. May we all be thankful for any man or woman who fights and gives their life for our country.

Although he might not be the most skillful writer, this book is obviously written from the heart and tells it like it is with PTSD. Whoever Sonja Olsen is she has no understanding of war, of this novel, or about veterans with PTSD. Brad Curtis has written from the heart and written about things that most people can't even imagine. He, as a Vietnam veteran, has put himself out there to give people like us the opportunity to understand the damage war does, so we will not make the same mistakes and do the same damage that was done when vets came home from Vietnam. I thought we had learned something from that, but apparently some people have not.

Sonja to answer your angry review I have PTSD.It took 30 years,then I hit a wall.I was diagnosed 2003 MPLS. As a medic I watched helpless as an 18 year old man died,then turned to clay.We did use whores in vung Tau. When I came home I was spit on, I was threatened, asked to leave a VFW because of Vietnam Service.We didn't win you know. I didn't get my story from a VFW. I knew these men and part of this story is mine. Steven C. really did sit on the pile of dead enemy soldiers with a joint. The picture still exists. Every mans tour was different.I was in the Army and 18. Marines were Probably different.The battle scenes were intensified for impact the home scenes were not. Prejudice against Vietnam Vets goes on to this day. 'I don't want to be around those scruffy, bearded greasy vets with there hats.' Someone said it last week about a near by Vets camp. Brad Curtis

It is a gripping tale about a reality I never imagined. A story that needs telling. An important work. Again-Wow!

I seems to me that Mr. Curtis may have watched a few too many war movies. Mr. Curtis claims to be a Vet, but his story seems to be stolen from the many of Vets that sit around thier local VFW drinking one too many beers! As a work of 'Fiction' I would have gave this waste of paper One quarter of a star, but I wasn't given that opportunity, so I guess one star will have to due.I can only hope that you are not claiming this farce as the truth. PLEASE MR. CURTIS - NEVER EVER WRITE SUCH FALSE TRUTHS ABOUT OUR TRUE AMERICAN HEROS!!!! I UNDERSTAND ABOUT PTSD, DUE TO WORKING IN THAT FIELD FOR THE LAST 15 YEARS, AND IT MAKES MY SICK THAT YOU WOULD TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OUR MILITARY HEROS FOR YOUR PROFIT!
