Then I received my orders for RVN ( Republic of Viet Nam I wrote this book about some of the memories I stuffed way down deep in my mind; Due to not feeling very welcome in the country I fought for. When I returned home, I grew my hair long and wouldn't wear anything green or military attire. I suffered from a serious skin condition, night mares, and flashbacks. (PTSD) I'm 67 years old now. In the face of death, I found some true friendships and brotherhood. You will meet a true humble hero SSgt. Randy Cox. one of the most significant man in my life.

No time for panic just react and keep your head. My job started when someone got hit or got caught in a booby trap. When I heard medic that was my cue to do whatever was needed to keep my rifleman alive until the dust off arrive d safely. When the sun went down darkness was our best camouflage.
