MILITARY WRITERS SOCIETY AWARD WINNING BOOK --- I have waited for over 45 years to tell this story, initially because I just wanted to forget the war and get on with making a living and raising a family. The other reason is that 45 years ago, thanks to the biased media, the American fighting man was not held in very high esteem and no one was ready to hear anything good about the Vietnam War or about the men who fought and died there. This book is less about me and more about the sacrifice, incredible hardships, and heroic actions displayed by the Marine Grunts that I had the privilege to treat during battles on the DMZ. It's about time you heard the truth about their story. Semper Fi Larry C. Miller "Doc" USMC

About the Author:

The Award Winning Author --- Larry grew up as a latchkey kid on the streets of South Los Angeles. Having little or no ambition and looking for some excitement in his life he volunteered for a four year tour of duty as a Navy Corpsman "Doc" attached to the Marine Corps during the height of the Vietnam War. He was thrust into an assignment as the Senior Corpsman in charge of all the medical need of a two hundred man Marine rifle company engaged in combat operations on the DMZ during the Tet Offensive. Surrounded by outstanding leadership and the "What ever it takes" attitude of the Marines he served with changed his life forever. He credits his experience with the Marine Corps for his passion for customer service and leadership. After he was discharged from the Marine Corps he joined the Los Angeles County Fire Department and became one of the nation’s first Firefighter Paramedics. He rose through the ranks to the position of second in command of the Department and had the privilege to be in a command position for the L.A. Riots, the Malibu Fire Storms, the Northridge Earthquakes, and many other natural and man-caused disasters. Continuing to chase his passion, he has taught fire ground tactics and command at the National Emergency Training Center for over twenty-five years and continues to work with The Department of Homeland Security on improving All Hazard Incident Management concepts for the nation’s First Responders.
