About the Book

This is basically an account of David’s combat experience with the US Marine Corps infantry in Vietnam. Through the years, David often spoke of these experiences, only to hear others tell his “stories” with various discrepancies. David wrote this book to help others keep the details accurate. The war experience is bracketed by information of his life before and after Vietnam.
