Flight of the Pegasus
by Dorian Morrison
In 1965, shortly before his 17th birthday, Victor Moore, a poor black teenager from rural Illinois, enlisted in the U.S. Army. At 18 he was sent to Vietnam where he experienced culture shock, opium dens and struggled to survive in a unforgiving war. In 1968 he returned home to a land devastated by civil unrest & wounded by the ugly legacy of slavery and the assassination of a Civil Rights hero.
