Publisher's Summary

This is an intimate look at life in the bush during the Vietnam War in 1968. You will experience the daily struggles, battles, and funny things that happen to a USMC grunt living in the bush for 13 months.

You’ll see firsthand through the battles, what marines ate and drank, where they slept, and their existence that ranged from unmitigated terror to utter boredom, hot and dry to wet and cold, rested and ready to frazzled and wired.

You’ll watch as a kid grows philosophically and confident, able to handle stress and strain, learning about friendship, love, difficulty, danger, deprivation, and loss.

His friends are American kids from all different walks of life, backgrounds, races, and learning. The common element among them is their humanity, bravery, and willingness to risk their lives to help one another. 

They all were simply just a bunch of American boys doing their job, taking their chances, hoping to go home to the real world from an unreal world.
