Review by: David H. Keith on March 24, 2013 :
I knew young men like Chester Mulroon and I lived through his times - I was one of those young men. I held some of them as they died, knowing all my skill and knowledge could do nothing for them. I thought, as the years passed, that I had finally healed from that war...I was wrong.

DeLong's tribute to Chester Mulroon brought back many memories and evoked a great deal of pain, but I suppose it needed doing. For that, I thank him.

DeLong tells a powerful, poignant, and all too real story of Vietnam and the young people who fought and died so that politicians and corporate CEOs could further enrich themselves. I think this book should be required reading in every school so that maybe, just maybe, the common person will at last refuse the siren call of other men's wars. A futile hope, that, but one I believe is well worth the effort.
