from “Long Daze at Long Binh”
While crossing the Pacific, blindfolded troops line up on deck in their skivvies
to get their heads dunked in floating garbage during the "Domain of the Golden Dragon" hazing ceremony
Why would infantry grunts out in the bush be carrying decks in which all
52 cards were the Ace of Spades?
Hint: It wasn't just a movie gimmick!
Aerial view of "Sin City," one of four
"brothel compounds" sanctioned and
supported by the US military in South Vietnam. Supposedly all were shut down after one soldier's mom complained to her congressman. Explained in the book.
Did the American military really use
flaming arrows in Nam like the Injuns
did at Fort Apache? Naaaaah.

THEY STUCK YOUR HEAD IN A BUCKET OF WHAT?
Welcome to the Domain of the Golden Dragon... where
getting there was definitely not half the fun!
HOW BADLY SHOULD WE WOUND THEM, SIR?
That’s right, we’re all non-combatants, which means...
no shooting to kill Charlie, fellas. Just shoot to wound!
HOLD ON... THIS PATIENT IS COVERED WITH FUR
“Queen Tonic, we have three WIA’s and a case of rabies onboard.” They said he was vicious, but it sounded

A TALE OF TWO HORSEMEN
Hopalong Cassidy, AKA
William Boyd, aboard his trusty steed Topper, who outlived Hoppy by 8 years. William Boyd spent some
time on the shit burning detail at the 24th Evac. It's explained in the book.
Jimmy Stewart aboard his longtime
companion "Pie." The horse might have been named after the horse
in the movie "National Velvet."
Pie was our mascot in Nam, lived
right in our hooch & consumed
more than his share of beer.
It's explained in the book.
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.
