protect US interests from what might be considered by some, sensitive, classified and or top-secret information
from being released to the public, copies of this war novel
were sent to US Military Intelligence, and for copyrighting, was listed with the Library of Congress, Washington DC in
mid 2007, years in advance of the book ever being released to the general public.... This gave the United
States government, ie military intelligence, the FBi, and the CIA, amongst others, time to read and investigate the books
inclusions before the public ever saw it. The author never heard from any official government office about its
inclusions, so in june of 2009 the first copy was sold publically. In June of 2011, the new extended version, second
edition was made available, being published and distributed by Amazon.com/books to readers around the world. Members
of US Military intelligence and even the President of the United States have signed copies.
This is one young man's story of his steadfast
dedication to his duty, honor, flag and country, and to his methods of survival while he served his
country when inlisted in the United States military from 1965 thru 1968.
Based on actual events in the life of Robert A. Boyd, this novel is being presented
to the general public, for cover-the-authors-ass-legally reasons, as a fiction work.
names of the actual Officers and NCO's that this book revolves around have been changed to protect the so-called
innocent? The books content, covers events that occurred in the 1960's and may or may not have bearing
on US Military operations and or its internal structure today. Because the US Government doesn't want
the general public to know about its failings or the truths surrounding them and the deficiencies blindly allowed
by the US Government to continue within the structure of the US military, its content is without a doubt considered
by some in the US government and the US Military to be highly sensitive, classified, and, or even, top-secret.
Therefore this novels controversial content has been kept from the publics eye, until now.
Because of storyline requirements, selected names and or ranks have been changed or antonyms have
been used in their place. In addition, to obscure the outlined missions actual locations and dates
of operations, selected sequences in the book have been fictionalized. However, the detailed criminal and
traitorous brutalities directed toward the author of this book by his commanding officers and their subordinate NCO's,
domestically, in the USA, in Japan, in the Philippine islands, and in Vietnam, are all true and complete to the
best of the authors recollection, summaries of which were written down both during and after PTSD counseling
and Hypnotherapy at VA facilities.
FOR THE READER:
Be advised... This IS a WAR novel;
written by a Vietnam Veteran, a man who was there. The brutalities of war are therefore clearly
depicted. From page one, word one, you are taken into combat and into the top secret realm of the CIA
and the US Military. You are also taken into a two front war; one fought against the enemy, in this case the
communist threat, the Red Chinese supporting the communist Vietnamese, and the other, a more serious covert threat to
Americans; the criminal acts of the more sadistic, mentally ill, and sometimes cowardous and or traitorous personalities
that make up parts of its command structure. The mentalities and subsequent brutalities of which are directed not
only toward the so called enemy, but also against honorable Americans that serve their country in the US Military.
This is the internal war that is fought every day and night against the few so-called, "trusted and relied upon," officers
and NCO's that commanded US Troops in those days. Again... This novel reveals the real threat of
just some of the sadistic and criminal groups or top-secret-sadist-clubs that are allowed to operate seemingly unchallenged
within the structure of the US Military.
Be Advised: This is a thought provoking
read that will make you feel many emotions as you become drawn into the story. Because this book
is written in first person, and because the writing is so very detailed, you will be taken
back into 1967 and 1968, into Vietnam, and into many conflicts in your mind. Therefore, as you read its passages, you will feel
like you are a part of the action. Some of the torturous treatment that was indured by the local inhabitants in Vietnam
is defigning and intense. To avoid nightmares, both men and women under the age of seventeen who have led sheltered
lives should refrain from reading this book. If you feel corageous, buckle up and turn to the first page.
If you can get past the first word of the first sentence of the first chapter, you should be good to go.
A glossary of terms and codename
assignments has been included at the back of the book for quick referance. When you purchase the book, and
since the book was written in the jargon of the day back then, and especially if you did not serve in Vietnam in a combat
roll in those days, it is highly recommended that your first read this section, to familiarize yourself with the
US Military and Civilian languages and or slangs of that theater of war.
