“That others might live” was the motto for dust-off medevac choppers and crews who risked their lives in order to save others in Vietnam whom they didn’t even know. Part of their creed was, “Anyone, anywhere, anytime.” It’s the same motto embraced by Air Force, Marine, Navy and Coast Guard air-sea rescue teams. I believe putting aside caring for one’s own life in the pursuit of saving others is the highest virtue anyone can express. The Medal of Honor is reserved and awarded for valor and service to fellow soldiers in this extraordinary form.

Such an interesting journey. I share so many memories of the 50s and 60s with the author. It was interesting to read about the constant changing culture in our communities decade-to-decade. From start to finish “DANANG VIETNAM” held me captive. Great story.
This autobiography is written with rawness, honesty and transparency. This book delivers the real story about one man’s journey though life. The author has a lot of questions about God, life, relationships, and love. He has some answers, but not all of them. Through it all, he has always been true to himself and his roots. He highlights many intimate details surrounding his life, and shares his victorys as well as his failures. So real. I love this book.
