Summary

Summary

Paul Drew could never have predicted the impact that combat and the underlying mood of the nation would have on him and his fellow soldiers. The social stigma still stings for most Vietnam vets, who were thought of as drug-addicted baby killing drones behind a war that was an embarrassing mistake and a failure. This is not a combat diary, but honest observations about a generation, those responsible for the conduct of the war, and the events that laid the groundwork for the state of the nation today -- a nation that still has yet to learn to hate war but respect its warriors.
