He is mentioned on page ' he has passed on as well two other brothers both who served during world war2 this book will be passed to my grandchildren and hopefully on to their children. Am 88 and still proud of a. All my family going back to Civil war. These were trying times to all Americans. I really enjoyed this book and learned a lot about the final chapter in the United States' involvement in Vietnam. This book peaked my curiosity because my brother was one of the marines stationed at this particular embassy in Vietnam.
Now my brother had never talked about it but recently mentioned it briefly at a family dinner and I did my own research.
He did end up with a 22 year career and retired as a sgt major. I just love the way this book was written! Ambassador McNamara gave a very accurate and detailed account of his last couple of months leading up to the pullout from Vietnam. It is so well written that it reminds me of some of my time in the service. Anyhow if you enjoy books that exposed the government's inner workings then this book is for you.
It also gives great insights into why Vietnam fell apart. Go to Amazon. Save for Later.
