The military service of millions of Americans is reflected in these stories that will put you in the middle of the action of our nation's wars.

Through firsthand accounts of veterans who served during World War Ii, the Cold War, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and Operations Desert Storm and Enduring Freedom; you'll find yourself paying tribute to each and every veteran.

The stories of personal sacrifice, commitment, and valor demonstrate the values that have made the United States of America the envy of the world. Sixty veterans recall their time in uniform, sharing stories that are both funny and heart wrenching.

One of those you'll hear from is a Vietnam combat veteran, who said:

I was fighting to survive and go home, while the North Vietnamese and the Viet Cong fought to preserve their country. Most of the South Vietnamese I met really had no interest in the war or its politics. It did not matter to them whether there was a North and South Vietnam; they just wanted to return to the rice paddies of their ancestors.

Walk in the combat boots of giants, and celebrate what it means to be an American devoted to freedom with Veterans' Reflections.

Sergeant First Class William R. Graser, Usa (Ret), was recruited by the Us Army Security Agency in 1965. His assignments included Korea, Vietnam, Thailand, Germany, including West Berlin, and the Us Army Security Agency's headquarters at Arlington Hall Station, Arlington, Virginia. He was awarded the Legion of Merit Medal for his service in West Berlin.

Book Description iUniverse, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.The military service of millions of Americans is reflected in these stories. They will put you in the middle of the action of our nation s wars. Through firsthand accounts of veterans who served during World War II, the Cold War, Korean War, Vietnam War, the Quiet War, and Operations Desert Storm and Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan); you ll find yourself paying tribute to each and every veteran. The stories of personal sacrifice, commitment, and valor demonstrate the values that have made the United States of America the envy of the world. Sixty veterans recall their time in uniform, sharing stories that are both funny and heart wrenching. These stories provide an excellent opportunity to gain an understanding and appreciation of veterans. Celebrate what is means to be an American devoted to freedom with Veterans Reflections. As a veteran himself, the author is obviously very close to this work, and it shows not only in his passion for his subject, but also in his attention to detail. His method, which weaves the veterans own stories into an historical overview of a specific conflict, is extremely effective. The soldiers accounts go well beyond the war s scorecard and reveal some of the actual fears and experiences of the participants. Anyone can tell the facts behind a story, but those who have lived it can share insights no secondhand history can match. - Premium US Reviews. Seller Inventory # AAV9781491772850
