About this title

Synopsis:

E. Franklin Evans had watched every war movie John Wayne ever made, sometimes several times over. When the "Duke" led his men, war was exciting and heroes were made as they ruggedly fought and predictably won each battle. But when Evans' high school friend and real-life hero Glenn was killed in Vietnam, war became real and personal for Evans, and he felt a tremendous obligation to the buddy who gave his life in that faraway jungle.At the tender age of nineteen, Evans voluntarily enlisted in the U.S. Army and left for basic training in early December of 1966. Before long, he was deeply entrenched in a treacherous war, far removed from his innocent and carefree youth. He had to learn not only to survive, but also to muster the bravery to lead others in combat as he was thrust from adolescence into adulthood.It has taken Evans more than thirty-five years to begin to heal the physical and emotional wounds that kept him from sharing his intensely personal story. From his depiction of the picturesque aerial view of Cam Rahn Bay to that of the barbed wire, metal planking, and squat huts housing weapons of death and destruction, Evans' Stand To provides a vividly detailed glimpse into what it was like to become a man on the battlefields of Vietnam.
