Mickey Bright put his heart and soul into his book about his three tours in the Vietnam War. He brings to life the men he served with and treasured as friends as well as the Vietnamese people he grew to know and respect. He describes everything he saw and felt about the war in vivid detail. That includes the horrors of war as well as the men's feverish efforts to block their worries and fears with drugs and booze in their off duty hours. In the Missouri Ozarks, Mickey was a happy go lucky, daring boy who didn't know fear. He grew into a man in Vietnam that kept his cool under fire. His family and extended family are proud of him for his service to his country and knew the man we called Mike for the soft hearted soul he was. He will be missed.

I have read most of the book and find it interesting because it tells of some of the events while I was there 1966-1968.
I was with the 87th Combat Engineer Co. 199th Inf.
I recall the event about the civilian barber stepping off the BMB (Brigade Main Base) The barber was turned over to the South Vietnam Army , it did not go well with the barber. I also remember when the rocket slammed into the P.O.W. Our company area was 100feet away from there, It lit up our living quarters. Anyway a good read.
