In Vietnam, you never knew what the day might bring
If you didn’t know whether you’d survive the day, what would you remember?
Vietnam veteran Donald McNamara presents his tour of duty the way in which it was drilled into him: by the numbers. There was a number for just about everything, and McNamara provides the details on everything from the First Infantry, through M16 and B-52, all the way through the final days, as 365 men walked – not marched – off the plane.
Because in war, you never truly know what the next day will bring.
