Please publish the website address below with a short note of what it’s about. This will allow your fellow readers of this blog an opportunity to visit and expand their own community.

John-I needed to know what really happened over there. I’ve read some books but want to learn from people like you. My favorite Veteran Website is probably not known by anyone else but it’s where my uncle is buried. He was career military (Air Force) and was active and still flying planes and served too many tours (1 tour is too many). He entered a strong (mental and physically) a strong man but left (Viet Nam) and never spoke about it. I can only guess is that if it had been easy (to talk about), he would have. And while I’ll never get the “facts” about what trauma he witnessed, I can only assume it was too much. How does one, my uncle, a Captain in the Air Force die of alcoholism at 37 years of age the days after he flew his last flight. Thank you for sharing what NEEDS to be shared. And thank you for serving.

The one that gives the Vietnam Veteran the most information he needs to survive today, the Vietnam Veterams of America: vva.org.
My favorite Vietnam Veteran Web Site is right there! As far as “Cherries” goes, I have compared it to similar genre, e,g,; Don Bodey’s “F.N.G” and Bob Miller’s “The Newbe,.” While in their own right both Don and Bob wrote enthralling novels quite entertaining, neither took hold of me, completely captivating me like “Cherries.” Until I finished it, I could not think nor did I want to do anything else. This book sets the standards….it’s THAT GOOD!!!!! “Cherries” is hands down a “must read!”
Thank you so much Bernie! I am going to publish this on my FB page as well. Have a great Holiday!
