    If you are looking for a gung ho, over the top, flag waving saga about the war in Vietnam then forget it. There is a definite "cynical edge" to the book, no doubt the result of the author having flown 300 missions in Vietnam and managing to come back alive. The hero is not an Academy man, he's ROTC and was an English major in college. A great thing about the book is how easy it is for those of us who were never in the military to identify with Rusty Naille; a regular guy who found himself in a strange land, surrounded by strange people and serving in an Air Force that was completely different than his stateside concepts. This is a must read for general aviation fans, as well as those who are interested in the war in Vietnam.

    Rocky Raab has a great writing style... When you read the book... It's way too easy to see. His choice of words and sentence structure simply put me in the airplane at the airport... When the plane landed in what was Vietnam... AND I could actually SMELL the stench, that was Vietnam, with how he was describing it! I don't think it was my morning oatmeal and blueberries either... Nor was it the nuked scrambled egg n'cheese with a hint of bacon bits. It was simply that Rocky, the writer, placed me, the reader in the story... I felt I was part and whole of the story... Another character reacting to his written words. Get the book... Read the story... And feel and hear and see what was.... Vietnam as a US Airmen / Pilot.

    "Baggy Zero Four" Rocky, you've done us up proud! Only a former FAC could describe Rusty Naille's experience so knowingly. Well told, the agony and the ecstacy, the frustration and the fulfillment, the misery and the comradery, is all there. Since the airborne FAC of the Vietnam era is an extinct species, this work of realistic fiction is a valuable contribution to the preservation of the history of the FAC. Thanks for a good book, Rocky. Tim (Capt. Skinny) Eby Covey 540

    "Baggy Zero Four" I just finished reading Rocky's book for the third time, and my wife has read it twice. We both give it seven stars, and would like to see it made into a movie. It's a great read, you can't just browse through it, you start to read just one page, and the next thing you know an hour has went by. Looking forward to reading his other book. ButchB and Reba.

    "Baggy Zero Four" I enjoyed your book very much. I am not a flyer,so I want to thank you for not cramming a lot of technical jargin into a well written story. I didn't want to become a FAC, mearly to meet one. Thank you. D. A. Jackson
