Publisher's Summary

These are the recollections of a draftee assigned to an infantry platoon in an air cavalry troop. BlueGhost Reveille follows me as a 22-year-old as I became a squad leader and then Platoon Sergeant during the war in Vietnam. The pieces of this audiobook are as factual as 50-year-old memories will allow. There is no intentional fiction in this work. The stories are about everyday life during this year in a combat unit. Some pieces are mundane, some are humorous, and the parts about going to serious war will get your heart up in your throat. 

I was not a SEAL, Ranger, or Green Beret. I was a draftee who turned down OCS because that would have meant extending my service by a year. I was chosen to go to NCO school which made me an instant NCO or a "shake and bake" sergeant. Reluctant warrior may have described many of us draftees at the time but when you know you are going to war, you better get serious. I did. Friends and family who have read this manuscript say it feels like I am sitting there telling them these stories. I hope it feels that way for you.

Being Blueghost17 (Scouts) I enjoyed reading John Harris' story about F Troop. it took me back to a time long ago, but still fresh today. Our home was Ky Ha heliport for much of that time.
