In writing my memoir, I began to research the history of the Vietnam War. I remembered the low state of morale in the unit I was assigned to because I had transferred from a unit of extremely high morale in Germany and at the time I didn't understand how two units in the same army could be so different. I was most interested in a battle that took place just before I arrived in country, the battle of August 25th at Bong Trang. The company commander of my new unit had been KIA in that battle along with four other men and about half the company had been wounded.
Wild horses, wild bears, wild indians, wild weather, and wild men: this book has it all! Life as a mountain man was never easy and for newcomer George Alwood III it came as hard as the winter ice in a mountain creek. A great read!
