Life was simple--living in bunkers, bathing out of wells, avoiding booby traps--but advisors learned that the Vietnamese culture was deep, rich, and complex. In this poignant collection of poetry, Mr. Thomas graphically portrays his feelings about the pain, confusion, and senselessness of this war.

After I finished college with an accounting major in May, 1967, the draft board was on me like locusts on a cornfield. I went through Infantry Officer Candidate School, subsequently being assigned as an advisor to Vietnamese militia stationed about 30 miles west of Saigon, a few miles east of the Cambodian border. There, we accompanied the militia on day and night patrols, but also taught tactics, sanitation, and assisted in civil projects. We seldom made contact with the enemy in the daytime; they attacked us at night in our small outpost, where we coordinated artillery and helicopter support. These poems are of the war, the people, and the country.About the Author:
