Publisher Marketing: When we embark on a journey, we carry with us who we are, including traits such as honor, integrity, and patriotism; but we also bring along our less desirable characteristics such as rage, guilt, and fear. Jack Lyndon Thomas details the person he was before, during, and after the war in Vietnam. More than just a memoir of his wartime experience, he takes a philosophical and spiritual view of the way survival experiences affect different individuals, vividly describing the commonalities and differences in the people he knew during the years he spent at war. Thomas was an infantry lieutenant, a member of an advisory unit that lived with the indigenous population, and, therefore, brings a unique perspective to the Vietnam experience. His conflicting feelings, including unresolved issues with his father, followed him long after the war. From this complex mesh of emotions is distilled a profound and intensely readable book.
