About the Author
Brewster MaCoy is from the north central United States, and a Viet Nam veteran. He spent more than ten years listening to various stories and experiences told to him by Viet Nam veterans, and decided to make the stories into a book. His intention for writing this book was to share some of the experiences that Viet Nam veterans had to endure. Many Viet Nam veterans were to young and naïve to understand the politics involved in the war. It was very difficult for many of the soldiers returning home not only to understand the protesting going on, but to be called names and to be persecuted for doing their duty and serving their country.
