Dallas, TX, June 01, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- In this memoir, Soyars tells how his personality, background, and attitude contributed to his will to succeed and his desire to be involved in the Vietnam War. As a boy, he always knew he'd serve his country. With both humor and sincerity, Soyars narrates his story; his childhood in Virginia, his enlistment into the army in 1965, his military training, his marriage in 1966, and his one-year service in Vietnam with the First Calvary from March of 1967-68.
Reinforced by his photos, Soyars conveys not only the sadness and heroics often associated with war but also shares stories of warmth, compassion, and romance. The appendix contains excerpts from letters between Soyars and his bride, which chronicle twelve months of the war as well as their love story. The book provides a glimpse into the horror of battle and offers insight into one soldier's actions and thoughts during this unique time in history.
