About the Book

At first, I hesitated to put two stories in one book. Their only connection is combat. Camp Boardwalk in 1945. Ice in Vietnam 1967. Camp Boardwalk is about men recovering from their wounds and celebrating the end of WWII. With the breakout of peace, what will their futures bring? Ice is a small part of an exhausting war that ended April, 1976, during the infamous helicopter exits. All the main characters are military. There are exceptions for cops and crooks in one book. Women in both. The author’s intention is to provide the reader the opportunity to participate in the main events of 1945 and 1967. As often in his stories there are no heroes: just good guys and bad guys bumping against one another on jungle trails or city streets, discovering themselves, and facing life’s difficulties. How they survive is their story and now yours.
