"Thank You Billy Myers. Those words don't come close to expressing the gratitude I feel for Mr. Myers
having written this book, especially the chapter on Operation Orange. For over
40 years I have searched every history I could find on the Vietnam war; looking
for some mention of Operation Orange, something to validate one of the pivotal
points in my life. I never found a word. Now, thanks to Mr. Myers, the story of
Operation Orange is a part of written history. I also want to thank Mr. Myers for letting me
be a small part in the researching of this story. That helped me deal with a
part of my past that I have never confronted.

I think the book is great! How he had the patience and perseverance to
complete such a task is beyond me. I think Marines, Medals and Vietnam is a
terrific follow up to Honor the Warrior."Marines, Medals and Vietnam

Wow! My father, and fellow warrior, has done it again with this great follow-up to his first book, "HONOR THE WARRIOR"! As a younger generation war veteran, I can only hope that those of us who served recently will one day be recognized in a book as well written and researched as this one! Billy Myers did a super job with this book. I was particularly impressed with his coverage of the fighting that occurred at Khe Sanh in the early part of 1968. Ray Stubbe, the Chaplain of Khe Sanh, had this to say about the book. "In several notable battles, the Myers book provides a more complete account than any other previously published book. His efforts will not only ensure that those who served there are not forgotten, but also help the general public as well as current Marines more fully realize the reality of their life, their heroism, and derive a much deeper appreciation of just what these men did in Vietnam. It is a very fine book."
The Medals lists are awesome and it is difficult for me to comprehend the perseverance and effort it took to nearly complete this unending quest. For the lists alone I salute you. Well done Marine!

Marines, Medals and Vietnam! What a great and appropriate title for this book. It consists of 17 different stories and all are well done. Each one includes the names of many of the participants and the casualties of each action. I especially enjoyed the chapter entitled The Jacques Patrol. One of my friends was there and says that it is "for real" and extremely well done.
The accurate list of Marines and Navy corpsmen alone who earned medals in the Vietnam War make this book a must buy for those interested in this conflict.

Recently, I saw an advertisement for a new book about the Vietnam War, 'Marines, Medals and Vietnam' by William L. Myers, so I bought a copy. Approximately ten (10) years ago Mr. Myers, who served in the U. S. Marine Corps in the 1960s, also wrote 'Honor the Warrior: The United States Marine Corps in Vietnam.' In my opinion, 'Marines, Medals and Vietnam' is a GREAT book, absolutely FANTASTIC, because it accurately describes some of the most intense, underappreciated, actions of the Vietnam War; it gives credit where credit is due. 'Marines, Medals and Vietnam' also contains an updated list of awards of the Medal of Honor, Navy Cross and Silver Star earned by Marines during the Vietnam War, giving you a reference with which to initiate a check of the phonies who claim to be heroes, or validate the underappreciated true heroes.

Of particular interest to me since they dealt with Khe Sanh, or involved the Marines of Echo, 2/26 with whom I am so proud to have served in 1967 and 1968, are chapters:
- Page 129; Attack on Echo; Echo, 2/3; May 3, 1967; Hill 881; The Hill Fights;
- Page 177; The Jacques Patrol; Bravo, 1/26; February 25, 1968; Khe Sanh Combat Base; The Ghost Patrol; and March,30, 1968; Khe Sanh Combat Base; The Revenge Patrol;
- Page 199; Preacher; Alpha, 1/9; April 16, 1968; Hill 689;
- Page 217; Fix Bayonets; Echo, 2/26; June 6, 1968; Con Thien; The Battle @ Dang Nam Airfield;
