In 1965, Master Sergeant Leo Dubois was ordered to Vietnam. Seventeen years in the Air Force, 37 years old, with five - soon to be six - children, he moved his family to Jacksboro, Texas for the year and then departed for the airbase at Da Nang. Every day or two, he exchanged letters with his beloved wife, Don Leta. Her letters from home are gone, but Leo's letters survive. They tell stories of tumult on a rapidly expanding military base and the trials and humor of leading the young men under his supervision. And the letters reveal life at home, not directly, but indirectly, as if in reflection. From beginning to end, and deeply, they reveal the tender affection and abiding devotion of a husband for his wife. 344 pages; 77 photographs and illustrations.

Even today, my thoughts of Vietnam are positive. I have incredibly fond memories of spending one year in that theater with some incredible people. My feelings about the Vietnam War mesh exactly with what Michael Norman wrote in his book These Good Men: Friendships Forged From War-even though Norman's heroes served in the U.S. Marine Corps and mine served in the First Air Cav. In recalling his tour in Vietnam, Norman wrote: "I did not pick these men. They were delivered by fate and the U.S. Marine Corps. But I know them in a way I know no other men. I have never since given anyone such trust. They were willing to guard something more precious than my life. They would have carried my reputation, the memory of me. It was part of the bargain we all made, the reason we were so willing to die for one another."

“Vietnam was tough. Most of us were young. We were in a foreign country fighting for a way of life we had barely experienced ourselves. Though the Vietnam War officially ended in 1975, there has been no end to the war for me ...” My Vietnam is Dave Morgan’s story. A typical 20 year old, he was forced into extraordinary circumstances in Vietnam. Far from his carefree youth, the Vietnam War would expose Dave to an atmosphere of ever-present danger and sheer terror that would impact him forever. His return to a divided Australia would isolate him further. During his service Dave wrote home to his mother from Vietnam tracking the days and the events. In 1992, after his mother passed away, he found all of his letters carefully numbered and in order. He has combined these letters with his own recollections and diary entries, and the short stories of seven other veterans, to capture the unbelievable danger andhorror that these young men experienced in Vietnam. Dave also describes how Vietnam established life-long feelings of intense loyalty, trust and mateship between the men that served there. Dave’s story focuses on his time as a soldier and his return psychologically exhausted to a divided nation. After Vietnam and the freedom of ‘home’, Dave tried to live a normal life, however the horror he’d experienced caught up with him. The pressure was immense. Eventually, something had to give. It wasn’t ever a matter of if, but when you would crack. The impact of Vietnam on his life has been, and continues to be, immeasurable. ‘Vietnam picked off the vulnerable like a hungry predator.’ Many of those who go to war and survive are scarred forever. My Vietnam is the biography - a coming of age story - of a self confessed ordinary bloke who has lead anything but an ordinary life.“Vietnam was tough. Most of us were young.

In 2014, the US marks the 50th anniversary of the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, the basis for the Johnson administration’s escalation of American military involvement in Southeast Asia and war against North Vietnam. Vietnam War Slang outlines the context behind the slang used by members of the United States Armed Forces during the Vietnam War. Troops facing and inflicting death display a high degree of linguistic creativity. Vietnam was the last American war fought by an army with conscripts, and their involuntary participation in the war added a dimension to the language. War has always been an incubator for slang; it is brutal, and brutality demands a vocabulary to describe what we don’t encounter in peacetime civilian life. Furthermore, such language serves to create an intense bond between comrades in the armed forces, helping them to support the heavy burdens of war. The troops in Vietnam faced the usual demands of war, as well as several that were unique to Vietnam – a murky political basis for the war, widespread corruption in the ruling government, untraditional guerilla warfare, an unpredictable civilian population in Vietnam, and a growing lack of popular support for the war back in the US. For all these reasons, the language of those who fought in Vietnam was a vivid reflection of life in wartime. Vietnam War Slang lays out the definitive record of the lexicon of Americans who fought in the Vietnam War. Assuming no prior knowledge, it presents around 2000 headwords, with each entry divided into sections giving parts of speech, definitions, glosses, the countries of origin, dates of earliest known citations, and citations. It will be an essential resource for Vietnam veterans and their families, students and readers of history, and anyone interested in the principles underpinning the development of slang.

This book began twenty years ago as a few paragraphs of remembrances written for my father (a retired Army officer) and for my sons (Sandy had heard all my war stories). I would not have been able to flesh out those paragraphs into a book without the help of my letters home. These letters filled in the when and the where and provided many forgotten episodes of my days as the senior advisor of the 36th Vietnamese Ranger Battalion and a company commander and staff officer in the 199th Light Infantry Brigade. The numerous quotations from the letters capture the humorous moments, the exhilaration, the occasional sorrow, and the optimistic can-so attitude of a young captain in combat.

In Part I the author discusses his experiences as Chief of Operations Analysis for Westmoreland during the 1966-67 phase of the Vietnam War. In 1969 he returns to Vietnam as Commanding General Force Artillery and Chief of Staff of Second Field Force, where his final action involves planning the 1970 Cambodian incursion. Turning down further promotions, in Part II he pursues a Ph.D. at Princeton on a campus alive with antiwar protest. We follow him to a tenured professorship at the University of Vermont, where his polling of U.S. generals who had served in Vietnam results in The War Managers, considered a classic book that sets forth their conflicting views on the conduct of that war.
