Recent widower Jeff Morgan never expected the treasure he would find after receiving a call from an attorney informing him that a fellow soldier from his Vietnam days has died. His old combat buddy willed Morgan a project--a manuscript containing details about a Civil War event. It was the soldier’s dying wish that Morgan complete the manuscript.
Jennifer Cerriety was the victim of a heinous crime, in a place where the perpetrators were the law. With no hope of justice, she had another thought.
Someone once told her that the only thing sweeter than revenge was retribution and Jennifer had a plan.
Entering the Army in June of 1969 and “In Country” by November, there began the journey. Vietnam was more than just a war. Vietnam was also the oppressive heat of the jungle, the bugs and mosquitoes, the snakes, the swamps and rice paddies, the monsoon rains and the constant grind of “Humping the Boonies.”
IN THE SUMMER OF 1969 elements of the 101st Airborne went back to the A Shau Valley in South Vietnam. IN THE SUMMER OF 1864 the 10th Vermont, part of General Ricketts’ Third Division, marched into the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia. SAM KENSINGTON WAS AT BOTH CAMPAIGNS.
