Moon Dash Warrior is the personal story of Delano Cummings, a young Lumbee Indian from Robeson County, North Carolina, who, inspired by simple patriotism and a straightforward devotion to duty, grew up to become a United States Marine in Vietnam. ...
Delano served three tours in Vietnam, one with the infantry as part of Second Battalion, First Marines, and two with an elite recon unit. During the 37 months that made up his personal war, this young Marine fought both the Viet Cong and the North Vietnamese in the mountains, jungles, rice paddies and valleys of South Vietnam. Relying on the training of his childhood as a Lumbee Indian, it did not take him long to learn to track his enemy in the woods and fields they called home. He also came to respect and learn from his enemy. Told simply and courageously, Moon Dash Warrior, is, in the end, the starkly real and very moving account of the difficult but honorable trail one proud, young, American Indian warrior determined to follow to its end.
