Synopsis: 365 and a Wake-Up is a front row, day-by-day chronicle as seen through the eyes of a common infantryman. The author, a twenty-year-old combat medic during his tour of duty, tells his story with all the trepidation of a typical draftee. This book is a chronicle of his experiences with a platoon of grunts as they hump through the mire of rice paddies, the jungles peppered with Agent Orange, and the booby-trapped hootches of the seemingly friendly villages. The story describes vividly the mixed bag of soldiers whose main agenda is not only to kill the Viet Cong but to simply make it through each of the 365 days and be given their wake-up.
About the Author: Frank Jolliff was drafted in 1967 during the Vietnam conflict and trained as a combat medic.
