Summary, etc.: "...rooted in memories that have meaning far beyond the families and friends of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine and Merchant Marine vets, whose lives are profiled between these covers. As the late author Susan Sontag said, "Everything rememberd is ... touching, precious." Precious, and in this case, holding a mirror up to the challenges of World War II, the Korean and Vietnam conflicts, and the return to civilian life. Most of these vets have returned to Sun City-Hilton Head, South Carolina, where author Arnold Rosen, who served in Korea, also lives. He delves into these individual histories with perspective and a knowing personal touch."--back cover.
