What a powerful story. Engrossing - and beautifully written. The reader is drawn into the experiences and actions and fears of a Marine's life in the Vietnam War...you can feel it, hear it. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this account...not able to turn the pages fast enough. The vivid descriptions, the subtle sarcasm and humor, all make this a tremendous read.

Some of you may remember the great WW2 war movie "A Walk in The Sun". It told the story of a small group of American soldiers in Italy. It detailed the micro-ism of war as seen by each individual. When reading "Sitrep;Vietnam" I found myself drawn into each character in a very close and personal way. Much as one did in the WW2 novel. The thoughts of the men who, while engaged in mortal combat, still must spend hours and days of boredom, counting days to go, and just trying to stay alive. It is mostly the story of a young Marine Corp officer, Lt.Sam. He arrives to his platoon and the men doubt him, and wonder if he will have the right stuff. After all, he is on day one which means he is the FNG that will make decisions that can mean life and death to them. Lt.Sam can feel his newness and wonders greatly how he will perform. How he will feel when the wounded and dead are at his feet. He will make decisions that will mean life or death for others. The greatest test of combat. The ultimate responsibility!

It is a great story of a young warrior's coming of age. It is a long year when one counts every day and when it is over Lt. Sam will know far more about himself than he could have ever imagined. After reading this work you find your self thinking a great deal about the events and how they effected the men involved and---you as a reader.

SitRep:Viet Nam
SitRep is a realistic account of the day to day lives of young marines in the hostile jungle environment of Viet Nam. This book is a sensory and vivid view of what these young men experienced in their daily lives during this fruitless war. The character that touched me the most was Doc P. He exemplified the idealism of a young man who quickly modifies his feelings when the reality and horrors of war quickly envelop him. He reminds me of all the young men who fought this war.
SitRep is comparable to What They Carried by Tim O'Brien in that it provided more insight into an awful time of supreme sacrifice for so many brave young Americans.
Like Pumpkin, I was pregnant and at home, praying that the brown car never stopped at my door.
War is Hell
