The Fortunate Son: Top, through the Eyes of Others, takes two paths. One path sheds light onto what it was like to be an Army brat during the Vietnam years. The second path describes the journey that many young men traveled as they were transformed from civilians to soldiers. Decades later, the Army brat, whose father was the combat seasoned senior NCO, meets thirteen men who served under his father in Vietnam. In total, fourteen men whose lives were touched by Top provide this Army brat with their words and a new understanding of what sacrifice at home meant to young men who needed leadership to survive.
