Weapons of War has given me the opportunity to tell my Vietnam story and how it affected me, my fiancée and my family. To give my family a written record of my service to my country. And to thank the United States Army for its role in shaping my character and developing me into a responsible leader ready and equipped to take on any challenge or mission. In other words, helping me to “be all that I can be.” And to finally tell my story of how the Army took a “raw recruit” and turned him into a trained combat soldier and proven leader.
