by G.D. Flener
My Tour in the Corps, ’66-’69 is an unabashed, highly descriptive, no “B.S.” perspective into the life of one Marine during the “Vietnam Era.” It’s all here: the rigors of boot camp, state-side training, I-Corp Vietnam, and the battle of Khe Sanh. This is a must read for all Marines of that era. Get ready to laugh your butt off and, maybe, shed a few tears. Actions of the Navy, Airforce, and the Army are also included. If you want to know what it was like to be a “small COG, on a small gear, in the big green machine,” you must read this book!
