Scars of Vietnam Personal Accounts by Veterans and Their Families by Harry Spiller

A Marine Corps recruiter returns to his old stamping grounds to speak with some of the men he enlisted, their families, and the families of others who were killed in action. Some remember their experience with a sense of patriotism; others are bitter and feel forgotten by their country. The 17 accounts are a reminder of the horrors of war, and the lasting effects of its aftermath.
