Publisher's Summary

It's the year 1969. I was serving in the US Army with my brothers of First Platoon Company A 3/1 11th Bde Americal (23rd Infantry) Division. We were average American sons, fathers, husbands, or brothers who'd enlisted or been drafted from all over the United States and who'd all come from different backgrounds. We came together and formed a brotherhood that will last through time. I share my experiences about weeks of boredom and minutes to hours of terror and surviving the heat, carrying a 60-pound rucksack, monsoons, a forest fire, a typhoon, building a firebase, fear, death, and fighting the enemy while mentally, physically, and morally exhausted.

Excellent account of a year in Viet Nam

Very moving account of a young soldier's year in Vietnam and the bond of brotherhood that forms in combat. Thank you to all the men who served in Vietnam and to Glyn Haynie for telling the story of his time in Vietnam and the first platoon soldiers that served with him. I highly recommend this book.
