It was a deadly business. These sailors, famous for their courage and combat effectiveness, face sniper bullets, machine guns, and mines while searching sampans, patrolling treacherous enemy-controlled waterways like Ambush Alley, and rescuing crews from burning boats in the middle of firefights. During the Tet Offensive, Goldsmith's area saw some of the most hotly contested fighting in the entire Mekong Delta. This gripping account is a tribute to those brave men and their agony, sacrifice, and heroism.

When will military writers learn that the continual use of acronyms make the story to hard to follow and are not necessasary to convey the meaning the author is trying to get across.
This has the potential to be a good story but the listener gets bogged down with all the acronyms and what they mean.
You need a cheat sheet to follow them.
