This is a book about my 26 months in Vietnam from Oct 1966 - Oct 1968. 12 months with the B 2nd 502 101st Airborne in active combat and then was selected to be Lt. General Rosson's driver. General Rosson selected me as his enlisted aide. Lt. General Stilwell replaced General Rosson and I be came his enlisted aide. I extended my tour of duty 2 different times.
This book is about getting "Free". It is a compilation of all the things I have learned that I did wrong or right, or wished I would have thought about doing hoping I would have done them right. It is based upon real experiences, not sitting around talking about the weather which none of us has any control over.
No question I am different breed of human being. As I get older, I find myself getting more and more opinionated about certain things in life. I have never been one to preach, give advice or condemn others for the way they leave. However, I do think that that are certain things in life that are a given. For instance. If you are fat, chances are you won't be hiking the Pacific Crest Trail this summer. If you smoke for sure you won't be doing any hiking. If you are a drinker, like I used to be, you probably don't do much of anything, but drink and deal with all the ramifications of doing so.
