Written by Bernie Weisz/Historian Pembroke Pines, Florida February 27, 2010 e mail:BernWei1@aol.com

I have studied the Vietnam War in high school, and more intensively in college, but what I learned in academia as opposed to the multiple memoirs of the actual participants are 2 different accounts altogether.

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. However, what separates one memoir from the next one are the veteran's personal observations and "window" if you will on one's tour of duty.

That's what you get and more with J. Richard Watkins' memoirs, Vietnam, No Regrets. As a radio operator with the 1/27 Wolfhounds, one of the most feared US Army units in the conflict, he takes
