Ghosts and Shadows
A Marine in Vietnam, 1968-1969, Paperback
On November 8, 1967, the author arrived at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in
San Diego, ill-prepared for the training and abuse that awaited him in boot
camp. At the time, he would have done anything to escape; only upon reflection
years later did he realize that the self-confidence instilled in him by his
drill instructors had probably saved his life in Vietnam.
