At a time when our media, university, and movie moguls were plotting new ways to bring down the next two American presidencies, some 18- and 19-year-old American kids suddenly became expendable to the personal agendas of moguls and presidents alike. This book is not your designer Hollywood-crybaby confessional designed to malign those who fought and died in an “immoral war.” It is a real story that spans the course of three combat commands and portrays the bravery and honor of America’s young men ordered to fight in those commands. Young men who took a green lieutenant under their wing and learned together how to repeatedly beat a cunning and well-equipped enemy in their own backyard. Young men who, during the most deadly years of fighting in Vietnam, lost only one man to enemy rifle fire. Though many still profit from their condemnation, those abandoned Americans were never Orphans of Honor.
