    Ok as far as it went But the author never explains what convictions lay under his decision to refuse to fight or carry a weapon And once he got to Vietnam, he only served as a combat medic for a few weeks Although his account of those weeks is gripping, he quickly got himself assigned to a safer post There must have been many war medicsqualified to tell this tale.

    I m really excited that our book group chose a local author and that we ll get to have him join us at our meeting I found the book to be well paced with excellent dialogue In contrast to Matterhorn, which was written in Marine, the military terminology in this book added texture without making the meaning impenetrable.I would have loved a littleabout his growing up and his parents, and perhaps how the experience affected the arc of his life.All in all, a really important perspective in I m really excited that our book group chose a local author and that we ll get to have him join us at our meeting I found the book to be well paced with excellent dialogue In contrast to Matterhorn, which was written in Marine, the military terminology in this book added texture without making the meaning impenetrable.I would have loved a littleabout his growing up and his parents, and perhaps how the experience affected the arc of his life.All in all, a really important perspective in a well written, accessible book

  3. Lance Fletcher says:

    While I do understand that the author is a product of his unfortunate times, I agree with some of the other reviewers that other medics would ve beenqualified to spin this yarn.He portrays the ugly side of war, but says little of the men who chose to fight an unjust war without the apparent bitterness of the author.And his bitterness leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

    A sanctimonious biographical account.

    This book was a good recounting of one person s true experience As such, it does not have a really well defined plot arc and does not try to bethan it is Very informative look at the ground level of the Vietnam War.

    This book will always hold a special place with me I especially loved the ending and what it really means to write a memoir of Vietnam This quote from the graphic novel Watchmen is very applicable As I come to understand Vietnam and what it implies about the human condition, I also realize that few humans will permit themselves such an understanding This book was so muchthan a story about a conscientious objector He typified the every man , while telling a very rare story one of t This book will always hold a special place with me I especially loved the ending and what it really means to write a memoir of Vietnam This quote from the graphic novel Watchmen is very applicable As I come to understand Vietnam and what it implies about the human condition, I also realize that few humans will permit themselves such an understanding This book was so muchthan a story about a conscientious objector He typified the every man , while telling a very rare story one of the medic

    I really liked this book I just picked it off the shelf in the library since there was anniversary stories of Vietnam in the news I didn t realize the author was local until I got to the end of the book I really liked how he told his story I like books with chapter titles for some reason If you want to learn about what it was like for one medic in Vietnam, I would definitely recommend this book.

    The author is kinda of annoying, I enjoyed it for its historial benefits solely based on my job as a medic in the army Its interesting how this MOS has changed since Veitnam I am hard pressed to find common ground with the author.
