About this title


An autobiography about a naive young man coming from a very stable and protected environment who went into the U.S. Navy at age 17. As a Navy Hospital Corpsman, he became a combat corpsman with the US Marines during the Vietnam War. This story includes memories of events and the actual text of letters written over a period of four years to his girlfriend who was still in high school while he was in The States, Japan, and Vietnam.

About the Author:

I was born in the isolated town of Fort Bragg and lived with three generations of relatives on the Mendocino Coast of Northern California. Unlike the majority of my relatives, I enlisted in the military at age seventeen to see what the world had to offer. By age twenty, I had been stationed in Japan before assignment to the Fleet Marine Force Vietnam as a combat corpsman with an infantry battalion. I lived, ate, fought, and slept in the mud and jungles on the DMZ with a remarkable company of Marines who became known as Ripley's Raiders. During my entire time in the service, I corresponded regularly with my high school sweetheart. Those letters surfaced thirty-eight years later, and I used them as a framework to chronicle my memories.

Store Description

I operated a used bookstore in Davis, California, from 1985-1992 (Berry's Books), then moved to Mendocino, and have been selling used books on the internet since 1998. Middletown CA is my new home, and the air here is ideal for book preservation (low humidity). I am a jack of all trades, master of none, which lends itself well to the book trade. I currently have 19,000 books online in 160 different subject categories. The inventory is regularly updated online, so if you see it listed, there is a 99+% chance that I can mail it by the next business day.
