In writing this memoir, I sought to showcase a unique and unusual Army combat engineer unit, whose dedication and resolve helped to save many lives during the Vietnam War.

Abstract:
This unusual memoir captures the sights, sounds and experiences of a young combat engineer from within the jungles of South Vietnam, where hard work, grueling conditions and enemy encounters forced this 19-year-old to grow up fast. The detailed account also highlights the achievements and dedicated spirit of a unique Engineer outfit, which evolved from a rag-tag platoon of Land Clearing pioneers, to eventually achieve full Company status within an unprecedented new battalion, comprised entirely of Land Clearing units. Essentially, this is a nuts-and-bolts and sweat-and-blood window view of a very different sort of wartime experience.
