Sam in 'Nam
Writing in the classic narrative style of poetry like Beowulf or Jason and the Argonauts, Sam goes to war. As a kid he was caught in the culture clash of the nineteen sixties. Sam embraced the ideas of the "Love Generation" while steeped in the mores of his parents WWII generation. Concluding there was only one way to know what was right, Sam went to war. This is the true story of a poet's Tour of Duty through his eyes and reflections.
