Deborah Fleming Please see my Vitenam War/hippie novel "Without Leave" published in 2014 by Black Mountain Press about a Navy man who goes AWOL in San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury district in 1967 and meets and artist and college dropout. Their personal journey constitutes the narrative. A lot of research into the military and culture of the times went into the creation of the story. At least please read the Amazon reviews. Thanks.
