Format: Paperback
This book was passionately written and was paginated in a way that it combined pictures and prose to tie together the authors (and others) extremely personal stories/experiences about the Viet Nam War and there experiences in it. The author pulls no punches and does not seem concerned with playing politics with the large government organizations that seem to dismiss/hold down the benefits that are deserved by Nam veterans. The book is truthful, informative, and one that I feel that everyone that wants to know the truth about this horrific war, should read.

Sincerely,

Gary Ockunzzi

Mr. Trimmer described the horrors of the war in Vietnam and life after Vietnam.
It was clearly written and he expressed his displeasure and high regard for fellow soldiers.
He clearly described how disruptive this war was to his life and those of his fellow soldiers
He describes how the press destroyed the soldiers image and controlled public opinion.
This is a great book to read

Roland "Dusty" Trimmer's,"Condemmed Property" is an amazing shared adventure filled with raw emotion and descriptive clarity that makes the reader almost feel there! I cried...and laughed...and then cried some more. What you have accomplished, for the Vietnam Veterans, with your book will be felt and heard for many years. His fight to get Vietnam Vets the hard earned benefits they so honorably deserve is a never ending battle and one he will not surrender to. This is a must read for anyone interested in a truthful look at the day to day hell Vietnam combat solders faced and their continued health and disability battles forty-years after the war...and yes it was a war!

Format: Hardcover
This is a great book from a great American. It is the real story of combat soldiers in Vietnam and what happened to them after the war and is still happening. No one can appreciate fully what they sacrificed and how it changed their lives forever. No one should ever forget. It is hard to put this book down as the story so vividly you feel you were there. It has it all, drama, humor, and a call to action. Don't miss this.

I haven't read a book in years, but when I heard this book was coming out I felt that it's a must read. I believe to the best of my knowledge from what I remember from that era, this book to be accurate and very informative. That was a dark time for many of us that served, if you were "in country" or not,(I was not). You knew that a lot of your friends are there or may be going there and that worked on your psyche. You also were never sure if you may be getting orders to participate in that "S***". this book I believe will help a lot of vets deal with certain issues that may still be with them. Hopefully some of our "leaders" will read this and do more to help the guys that went through this crap and quit trying to hope it all will just go away. Good job Dusty, well done.

Having been born in the early '60's, I only knew about Vietnam from history books in school. Now I'm getting a first hand look at what really went on....in the minds of the brave soldiers who fought there!! Very good reading so far!! Thanks to Dusty Trimmer for this book!!

This book is a must read for all, especially the baby boomers! It was very hard book to read because it jumped around a bit as did my emotions! This is a great book but I had to stop reading it at times. It was the war that no one wanted including the men that fought it. This was an unpopular war that the politicians and the media wouldn't allow America to win. I think back and remember the home coming the American fighting man got and think..............Shame on us!

The book is a grunt's attempt to shed light on what it was really like and what he faced on a daily basis. It also tells what he and his brothers faced upon their return, both on a personal level and on a societal level. This is a personal story, written with passion and quite a bit of anger at their "thanks" for a job well done. Mr. Trimmer's experiences in Viet Nam, his experiences after his return, and his experiences with a V.A. system too bureaucratic to fulfill their charter to help the Veteran. I was in the Army during that war, but my orders to Nam were rescinded at the last moment; therefore I wasn't there! But Dusty's accounts ring so true. His combat experiences were traumatic and harrowing. His life upon return was chaotic as were the lives of so many others intimately involved in close combat in Nam. What was unusual was the lack of appreciation and help the Nam vets received from the American people and the U.S. Government who sent them there. The title of the book refers to the aftermath of his experience and the dealings with the V.A. I have dealt with the same bureaucracy myself and he's right on target. For those that weren't there, this is an eye-opener; for those who were there, it's a call to stop taking it lying down and speak out! Highly recommended reading.
