Editorial Reviews

From the Author

A Note to the ReaderWhen I first started writing Silent Heroes, the original intention to be for family changed over the weeks, months and years it took to write. After receiving encouragement from fellow authors to proceed on this route, the book was no longer a memoir, but rather fiction based on actual events.My intentions for writing Silent Heroes are to show the fundamental reality of war through personal experience. Though mine lie in the Vietnam War, it could have been Desert Storm, where I also served, or Iraqi Freedom.Whether it is in the jungle, the desert, or the mountains of Afghanistan, the book reveals how a young man, sent to war is transformed into a veteran combat warrior, ready and willing to kill, not for God and Country, but more for his fellow marine, soldier. His brother's in arms.Silent Heroes represents everything that happened to me during that year in Vietnam. In most of the chapters, they are accurate to the best of my memory, I'm directly involved. In some, not many, I'm indirectly involved, but with enough on hand knowledge to write what took place. The book is as close to authenticity as I could remember.The names have been changed to protect individual identities.Author used a literary license.

About the Author

Rick Greenberg is a 25 year veteran of the United States Marine Corps. He served in Vietnam with the First Reconnaissance Battalion, Alpha Company. Writing about his experiences in Silent Heroes. Following Vietnam, he grew in rank to a Staff Sergeant when Desert Storm happened. Now in Motor Transport, he took the first resupply convoy through the gas filled mine fields directly behind our invading grunts and tanks. Once again he was a combatant fighting for his country. Moving to the rank of Gunnery Sergeant, he retired shortly after the tragic death of his wife. In 1993, Gunny Green became a civilian, but always a Marine.
