What's most interesting about a Vietnam veteran's memoirs of having fought in the conflict is the shared experience that all veterans have no matter where one served.

Thank you, Mr. J. Richard Watkins, for writing this book. Thank you for setting up a table alongside the parade route in Plymouth MA last Thanksgiving-time from which you sold copies of that book.

You were dressed in your soldier fatigues; a soft-spoken gentleman that was in no way "pushing" his merchandise. I admired that. I also knew I had never read a book about the Vietnam War nor was I in any way interested in it. Something in my gut said maybe it was time to change that. My sister and I ha
