Additional Information

It is 1970, and the United States is still deeply bogged down in the quagmire known as Vietnam. Greg Taylor, a rural bred Pennsylvanian, finds himself becoming yet another cog in the massive military machine known as the US Army. My novel follows him from the dehumanizing nine weeks of basic training, through his six month stint as a Military Policeman at Aberdeen Proving Grounds, Maryland, and then to his ten plus month tour of duty in Vietnam and ends when he first visits the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, D.C., in 1985. He has several hair-raising adventures at APG, before he receives his orders for Vietnam, and once he is there, in a relatively secure area, finds that the war can claim victims anywhere in the country, even in so called safe areas. After one near-death experience, he meets a young army nurse, one that he had a crush on several years before, and though fraternization between officers and enlisted personnel is strictly taboo, they find a way to continue their love affair and look forward to the day they will be back in the states as man and wife. This novel gives the reader an overview of the Military Police mission, and also shows the frustrations shared by the men and women who served there.

The catalogue of books on the Vietnam War is growing steadily as veterans and historians prepare for the 50th anniversary of America's involvement in the conflict that would tear a nation apart. As for many of the books penned by veterans, many of these men have ghosts they need to lay rest to finally come to grips with the war no matter where they served--whether in the northern highlands ot in the Mekong Delta. There are thousands of stories that have been told or are waiting to be told. For veterans who at one time might not have been able to articulate their time in Nam, now are able to find a voice to share their experiences. One of those voices is the voice of Larry Deibert who explains his service as an MP in 95 Bravo. Although the book reads like a memoir, it is an amalgamation of stories and events all rolled up into one story. The book reads well as we follow Greg Taylor from civilian to draftee/MP and then back to the civilian world--one of the book's strengths because we... Read more
Was an MP back inthe day. Purchased this book and it took me back in time. Great read. One of the best books I have read about being an MP.
