I was assigned to 2nd Platoon in August of 1969 just as the author, Staff Sergeant John Quintrell, was rotating home. His book: “My 365 days with the Wolfhounds in Vietnam, 1968-1969,” (www.my365daysvetbook.com) is a chillingly accurate description of the life of an infantry soldier in Vietnam during that era. He captures the sucking insects: from leeches to mosquitoes; booby traps to ambushes; acting as bait for Sir Charles on the Cambodian Border; sharing C-Rations, looking for love in in all the wrong R&R places, to the smell of diesel fuel burning human waste that is forever instilled in my mind. If you have an interest of just how bad Vietnam was this is the book to read. Enjoy!
