Over 130 stories from Vietnam veteran members of the Atlanta Vietnam Veterans Business Association are included in this book. They cover all years of the war, from 1959 through 1975, from the DMZ, through the central highlands, the area around Saigon, the Delta, and those who served in the waters of the South China Sea and flew from bases outside Vietnam.
Vietnam was not a sixteen year war, it was a one-year war fought sixteen times by a different group of American patriots. Each story is the individual experience of a Soldier, Sailor, Airman, Marine, Coast Guardsman relating his experiences during the time he served in Vietnam. Stories cover the gamut from stateside training through funny events through gut-wrenching experiences that make up the tapestry of the Vietnam War experience for those who lived them. There is no better way to learn about the Vietnam war than through the eyes of those Americans who answered our country’s call to duty.
