An American Town and the Vietnam War : Stories of Service from Stamford, Connecticut Paperback / softback

Description

Hundreds of Americans from the town of Stamford, Connecticut, fought in the Vietnam War.

Of those, 29 did not return. These men and women came from all corners of the town.

They were white and black, poor and wealthy. Some had not finished high school; others had graduate degrees.

They served as grunts and helicopter pilots, battlefield surgeons and nurses, combat engineers and mine sweepers.

Greeted with indifference and sometimes hostility upon their return home, they learned to suppress their memories in a nation fraught with political, economic and racial tensions.

Now in their late 60s and 70s, these veterans have begun to tell their stories, which have been collected and recorded in this book.
