Aided by an uncanny memory, James E. Parker, Jr. relates every last detail of his experience in Vietnam, from the best meal he ate to every bullet fired when he was ambushed just hours later. Jungle firefights, chasing VC in the Cu Chi tunnels, sniper attacks, the very ground under him shaking from B-52 attacks. Parker saw it all, and did it all- for his country and his comrades: he was the type of soldier you wanted covering your back. After his tour ended, he returned briefly to the States, finished college and joined the CIA. Then it was right back to the war, where he let Hmong and Thai volunteers in Laos against the NVA. When Saigon fell in 1975, Parker helped conduct the last-minute evacuation of South Vietnamese. Last Man Out is a sober Portrait of a man willing to face the worst for the simple but noble belief in duty, self-sacrifice and love of country. Parker's talent doesn't end on the battlefield. He also has a natural gift for storytelling. This soldier of soldiers doesn't swagger, brag or offer gratuitous gore. He doesn't need to. Modest and honest hes simple tells it like it was. The experience speaks for itself.
