“LONG DAZE AT LONG BINH”
1966 ad for the Ronson Comet butane lighter. Must have been a hell of an ad campaign since Steve got two of 'em for Christmas, both sent to him in Nam. The only 2 gifts he received that year— what are the odds?
NOTE: This book is not about
combat. It's a lighthearted
but information-packed look
at what life was like for some
of the 2.5 million American non-combatants who spent
a year in Vietnam but rarely
(if ever) found it necessary
to pull a trigger.
