The Littlest Lieutenant Letters from Vietnam By Jean Fitzsimmons
Paperback: $15.00
Ships in 3-5 business days.
The letters in this book were written for the most part by Jean Fitzsimmons to his family members. They begin as Jean, a second lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps, traveled for his first... More > tour of duty to Vietnam in October of 1969, and continue until his abrupt departure in September of 1970. The letters have been reproduced faithfully and are presented here in their original form—I only mention it because perhaps they shouldn’t be. The language is crude and colorful and, well, generally Marine-ish, but that’s kind of the point. Here are the words of a young Marine off to war: proud, scared, excited, apprehensive, moving, hilarious words. Jean wouldn’t have apologized for any of them then, and I won’t apologize for any of them now. Happy reading.< Less
Dear Maxie Love Letters from Vietnam By Gary Canant

I left Maxie to go to Vietnam on April 25, 1968. We had been married for 18 days; we are still married today and are still very much in love. I arrived in Vietnam on May 19, 1968 (Ho Chi... More > Minh’s birthday) and returned to the world on January 14, 1969. I spent 240 days in Vietnam; it felt like an eternity. Maxie experienced the war through my letters one day at a time. On good days she would get a letter from me, on better days a couple of letters or pictures or some other tidbit from me. On bad days, no letter would arrive due to mail foul-ups, weather, or just luck. Unfortunately, her letters to me did not survive the war. The letters will not be in any particular order since I didn't date the letters; but that's ok since my tour in Vietnam did not have a story line: just a beginning and an end - the rest was a muddle in the middle. Join us as we journey through a difficult time for our nation through the eyes of a Marine and his beautiful new wife.< Less
