Our Turn to Serve: An Army Veteran's Memoir of the Vietnam War
Our Turn to Serve is a memoir of one soldier’s journey through the unpopular Vietnam War. The reader will accompany him as he graduates from a small town high school, enters and drops out of college, receives his draft notice, leaves family and friends and trains as a U.S. Army infantry soldier. He will take you to the Central Highlands of Vietnam as a young rookie, and bring you back with him a seasoned veteran. You will experience life changing events and return home with a different perspective of this misreported and misunderstood War.
