In 1967, the Vietnam War was raging. To amass the required soldiers, thousands of America's young men received the dreaded "greeting" from the President, instructing them to report for military service. This fueled conflict in our own nation as war protesters marched in the streets and challenged the political system that determined to fight a war in a far land. Those "drafted" for Vietnam had three choices: They could go to jail; they could leave the United States; or, they could go to war. It was not easy but most answered their country's call. Also, many of America's young men and women volunteered to fight the oppression in Southeast Asia. This book is dedicated to those who bravely went to war, many of whom did not return.
