In his first book, journalist Solotaroff examines the New England Shelter for Homeless Veterans by looking at its founder, Ken Smith, and five severely disturbed clients. These include a suicidal, alcoholic ex-Marine who is tormented by what he did in Vietnam and is now fighting for the custody of his daughter; and an embittered, warobsessed, former Army tank commander who ""loved his tour in Vietnam"" so much that he built a military-style bunker in his basement and stayed up nights in his backyard listening for the Viet Cong.

Paul Solotaroff's work provides great insight into the lives, both private and public, of our often overlooked and once reviled Vietnam veterans. Not only were they witness to tremendous cruelties while serving active duty, they returned to a country where few understood. Our servicemen were expected to return to life as usual from the time they stepped out of the battle fields. Solotaroff mixes statistical information with individual stories of these courageous men in a very compelling way. Among all the injustices of our society and government towards these soldiers, Solotaroff tells a story of three vets' dreams and the hope they have brought to many others through their determination and hard work. The tales of the continuing effects of PTSD should help the reader to understand not only the Vietnam era vets, but also our military personnel presently serving in wars and police actions around the world.
Simple
Highly recommended for anyone interested in veterans issues, history, the Vietnam War and the American experience of the 60's, 70's and 80's. I read this and realized that, although I am not a Vietnam-era veteran, it still described many of my experiences as a vet. I remembered reading about how Vietnam vets come home and could not believe how little the American public knew about the issues they faced. I felt the exact same way about my experience 30 years later.

This is possibly the best down-home earthy style book I've read about the Vietnam Conflict. It is heartwrenching and true, and something you'll not soon forget. I'm sorry that it has fallen out of print, because it deals with an issue no one wants to talk about: the war we lost, and the stashing of our veterans out of public view.

As a Vietnam veteran with PTSD I found this book an ez read. I Learned to see things that I put myself and family through from different perspectives. I was so impressed that I forwarded the title to my VA counsellor for her review.

I have read this book at least three times. It has changed my views completely on what war does to our men. It also helped me to understand what was happening in my own life when I was a young woman married to a vet.
