I left Maxie to go to Vietnam on April 25, 1968. We had been married for 18 days; we are still married today and are still very much in love. I arrived in Vietnam on May 19, 1968 (Ho Chi Minh's birthday) and returned to the world on January 14, ...
1969. I spent 240 days in Vietnam; it felt like an eternity. Maxie experienced the war through my letters one day at a time. On good days she would get a letter from me, on better days a couple of letters or pictures or some other tidbit from me. On bad days, no letter would arrive due to mail foul-ups, weather, or just luck. Unfortunately, her letters to me did not survive the war. The letters will not be in any particular order since I didn't date the letters; but that's ok since my tour in Vietnam did not have a story line: just a beginning and an end - the rest was a muddle in the middle. Join us as we journey through a difficult time for our nation through the eyes of a Marine and his beautiful new wife.
