This is the story of my short military service including my perspective of the Vietnam War from the start, and it follows America's descent into chaos until the final days in 1975. I was drafted several times and eventually was inducted into the Army on April 20, 1967, and then was sent to Fort Knox, Kentucky for Basic Training. Afterwards, I was assigned to Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri for Combat Engineering Training where I headed a squad of 16 people. In October, I was sent to Vietnam as a Combat Engineer; but, through fortuitous circumstances, I became a Finance Specialist with the 1st Infantry Division, better known as the Big Red One.
