9781426930294: Return of the Warriors: Vietnam War Veterans Face the Ghosts of Their Past on Their Personal Battlegrounds

"As well as being historically informative, this book offers an intimate narrative from those who were there. The stories are real, told by soldiers who experienced the War day to day, night by night, and for their own reasons, be it healing or otherwise, decided to return." Ronald J. Soden, CSM, USA, Retired: Light Weapons Infantry Advisor, ARVN 5th Inf Div, War Zones C & D, 1965-66. Platoon Sergeant; E Co, 1st Bn, 22nd Inf, 2nd Bde 4th Inf Div; Vietnam 1968-70. "I joined the Army in early 1964 for three years but was never sent to Vietnam. Over the years I could not understand why a Vietnam Veteran (especially a combat vet) would return to the place where he experienced the worst times of his life. After reading Return of the Warriors I now understand why they return. It was a great time of healing for all. This is a great book and I highly recommend it to anyone." William T. Bussey, Jr. Past President, NW Chapter, 4th Inf Div Association; served in 4th ID and 7th ID (Korea); Staff Sergeant at discharge. "The juxtaposition of scenes from the return trip in 1998 with various memories from thirty years before gives a special power to this book and makes it more than just a memoir, more than just a travel report. If you spent any time anywhere in Vietnam during the war, this book will give a healing touch to your memories. If you were in the AO (Area of Operations) where these men served and returned, you will turn each page excitedly to learn how these memories match yours, and what has become of the places you served. A warm and healing book that will serve not only veterans, but also those who love them." Rev. Jackson H. Day, 2d Vice President, International Conference of War Veteran Ministers; Assistant First Brigade Chaplain (1/8, 3/8, 3/12 Infantry, 6/29 Artillery), 4th Infantry Division, 1968-1969. "The author is both a Comrade-in-Arms in the Fourth Infantry Division and a close personal friend of some forty plus years. In writing this book Bob felt compelled to accomplish a mission. This he did admirably; but you should be the one to interpret what that mission was; it may well be different for different readers, and that is as it should be. The accounts rendered are insightful, profound, entertaining and not without considerable humor. The book should be listed as a "must read", not only for veterans of Viet Nam but their children, grandchildren, friends and important others. All will enjoy the book." James W. Biermann, LTC, USA, Retired; S-2, 4th Engineer Battalion (Combat), 4th Inf Div, Vietnam 1966-67.
