Product description...

Poignant coming-of-age tale set against the backdrop of the Vietnam War

When 18-year-old Charlie Kinane, from Chicago, is drafted at the height of the Vietnam (RVN) War shortly after high school graduation, he decides to enter the U.S. Navy as a hospital corpsman and pursue Navy pharmacy tech training. Charlie believes this will give him the best chance of avoiding war-zone deployment. His goal is to serve, but also to survive. Charlie receives his orders to join the 3rd Marine Division, at Charlie Med Base, Khe Sahn, Vietnam—a base regularly under heavy attack. His primary function on Charlie Med is to keep track of all medical supplies, including all controlled medications used for wounded Marines, but when Charlie is sent as a corpsman replacement for Marines on an overnight search-and-destroy mission outside the wire, he will come face-to-face with all his fears.
