    I made the walk with Ron Goddard in 1967. Both of us Marines in Vietnam in Golf Company, 2/4. As I started reading Ron's memoir, I began to realize that I was taking a trip down memory lane. The smells of the country and villages came back to me vividly, and so did the memories of fear when we were engaged with the enemy. Ron writes from the hip, telling his story as he saw it, and considering the time element, I was amazed at how he could recall so much information from so long ago. I had forgotten so much of my tour, but Ron brought it all back despite our being in two different platoons, yet serving in the same company. I think Ron did a fine job writing this story, which must have been difficult at times, as he lost many friends in 1967 Vietnam serving as fire-team leader. He goes on to tell the story of the big battle we fought up on the DMZ, where we were outnumbered 4 to 1 by well trained and disciplined North Vietnamese army regulars, who would often fight to the last man. Ron... More > describes the battle at Phu Oc, outside of Marine Firebase at Con Thien, with precision, and explains the moment when he saw me wounded in front of him when a mortar round exploded at my feet. I would certainly recommend Ron Goddard's book to anyone interested in the Marines, the Vietnam War, and those who just want a good, solid glimpse into a war where young men served proudly for their country.< Less
