Lisa Lark did a magnificent job of capturing the pain of loss, the pride of having a loved one in service and the heart of those men and women to gave the ultimate for our country. It is a wonderful read......it is a heart-breaking read.....it is a must-read! For those of us who experienced the Vietnam War (whether as a participant or as a bystander), this book will bring smiles and tears. For those who have parents or siblings or friends who served in Nam, it will help them understand why no one wants to talk about the experience. And for those too young to know anything about this war that no one wanted, it will help them appreciate the freedoms we all have today and what it truly cost this nation.

Yes, I am personally connected to this book. Lisa Lark took the time to sit down and spend several hours with my husband and me to talk about cousin Doug Kempf, a medic who lost his life in September 1969.....lost his life trying to safe another's. Lisa wanted to get it right....to honor those who served......and to put a face on the thousands who didn't return.

This book will, I pray, open up the lines of communication between veterans and their families. When the Vietnam soldiers returned home, they were treated like lepers --- shunned and ignored. They ALL deserve our thanks and our respect. Thank you, Lisa. Thank you so much.

I cannot recommend this enough. This is a must read for anyone who had a family member, friend and acquaintance who endured, or was lost, in the Viet Nam War. It is a must read. Contacted the author, and she invited me to become involved with her second work. This new project will profile survivors of the war.

It is well 'about time' that someone wrote of the men and boys who went off to war in the Vietnam Era - the ordinary, patriotic, and fun-loving boys who became men as well as the men who took it on as their duty to their country (as corny as that sounds today - it was true).

The Author asked me permission to use a photograph of me and another soldier in the 101st Airborne Divison in Vietnam for her new book.
I got this book to see how good her work was and did it or did it not honor our fight.
It is emotional for me, but it verified her good faith.

This book gives a reminder of the great sacrifices our soldiers and their families make for us. The book is beautifully written. The reader cannot help but feel empathy for all those who have lost a loved one--family member or friend--in service to his (or her) country.

Good job, Ms. Lark

The Vietnam era left a profound footprint on all of us. Sadly, it was a time cloaked in shame
and, at times, outrage for the brave men and women who served, those who never returned, and for
America, during the longest war in U.S. history.

The creation of The Wall on November 13, 1982, was the integral first step out of many towards
the healing of America. Lisa Lark has taken another important step with this book.

"All They Left Behind" drives home the hard, cold reality that behind each of those 58,000 names
on The Wall was a real person who lived and loved and ultimately made the supreme sacrifice for
their country. In this book, we are given a personal glimpse into the lives and legacies behind
just a few of those names on The Wall by the families, friends, and the people who knew and loved
them. Thank you, Lisa.

In loving memory of my husband:

Lisa Lark did a great job of telling the stories of the men and women that gave their lives to keep this country free. My brother James T. Lockridge is one of the ones in this book. I don't think that we give our vets the honor they deserve. Thanks Lisa for doing a service to these men and women that gave their all for their country.
