In April 1968, we were a country at war with ourselves and increasingly with a small country halfway around the world: Vietnam. I don’t recall ever thinking about Vietnam when I started college in 1963. By 1968, it was all any of us could think about. This memoir was written for my grandchildren, but it will give anyone some sense of what it was like to serve a tour of duty in Vietnam.
