Having just read a fabulous book written by a now good friend of mine. I have to recommend it for prior reading for anyone interested in the DMZ area of Viet Nam and anyone visiting or touring the DMZ area. The book is a great read and for me, took me back to my days in Viet Nam complete with wide eyed amazement having had my "Uncle Sam" deposit me at such a tender age in this remote and terrifying place. Bob Johnston the author now lives in Tuy Hoa with his wife Phuong running a cafe featuring American food. The book gives you a glimpse of Viet Nam seldom mentioned anywhere in any history books about the war. A small piece of the complete picture but a vital snipet if you want to know the intricate workings of how the US military fed, housed and supplied its troops in remote areas of Viet Nam. From the early days of establishing forward areas in dense forbidding spots along the Cau Viet river to joyful rendezous with large Naval ships on the open South China Sea. History buffs will love it and the casual reader will get a taste of what it was like for alot of young men to be transported to RVN...Republic of Viet Nam.
