It was a monumental year . . . the Mamas and Papas, The Beach Boys, Bob Dylan and scores of world famous rock groups poured out their sweet music and wonderful lyrics to a generation of young people in search of themselves. In July, what was thought to be impossible became possible . . . Neil Armstrong first set foot on the moon and for one shining moment in October, the NY Mets were no longer to be laughed at . . . they won the 1969 World Series! The year was 1969! While earth shaking events were happening two hundred thousand miles from home or deep within the confines of Shea Stadium, men of every race, education and age group were fighting and dying 12,000 miles from home in Americas most unpopular war, Vietnam. Today, 40 years later, writer, husband and Veteran Jack Manick reaches into his soul for one last time and completes his account of a young medic as he walked the jungles and forests of the Central Highlands of Vietnam in 1969. While in the "Bush" he carried a pack, a medical aid bag, two knives, three grenades, a rifle, pistol and an unbreakable commitment to save the lives of his fellow soldiers, even at the cost of his own. The story of Jack "Doc" Manick and his fellow soldiers is one of survival . . . survival in a country laden with malaria, crawling with venomous snakes, scorpions, rats, giant centipedes and tigers and dominated by an enemy determined "Not to lose the War" "Incoming . . . The Men of the 70th" invites you to lace up your jungle boots and take a walk with Jack through the jungles and the fields of dry grass in the Central Highlands of Vietnam in 1969.

About the Author:

Jack Manick volunteered for military service in 1968. He served one Tour of Duty in Vietnam as a Combat Medic with the remainder of his three year obligation spread among hospital and Infantry Duty in Germany and the US. His military service was with the 1'st and 24th Infantry Divisions, the 70th Combat Engineers and USAREUR US Army Europe. Jack's most recent book "Incoming" details the life of a medic in Vietnam's Central Highlands in 1969. It is a "walk in my boots" story as seen through the eyes of a 21 year old army medic . . . Jack. Jack is currently completing a new book entitled "Men of the 70'th" . . . a compendium of stories written by men from Jack's Unit, the 70'th Combat Engineering Battalion. It is their stories written by them. This book is his effort to capture a small slice of history before it is lost when those who made it pass on. In addition, Jack has written seven specialty Art Books documenting the life and times of artists who have shaped the destiny of the 20'th and 21'st Century, names like Michael Godard, John Kelly, James Coleman, David Garibaldi and others. Along with Richard Enfantino from Enfantino Publishing, they published their first ever book, Don't Drink and Draw, the life story and art work of world famous artist Michael Godard. It won the "Best Art Book in 2006" Award by the USA Book News. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, Jack wrote a Veterans Column titled "Insights of a Veteran" for Comcast's "IntheGardenState.com" local content site in New Jersey and was awarded a "Best Military Site" by Military.com for it. Jack believes that every day is a "Gift" from a higher power and that it should be lived with conviction and passion. Transforming what in the heart and soul to the "Printed Word" is Jack's passion and he plans to continue with it into the future.
