Last weekend, I found myself on Chestnut Street in Philadelphia, in a Dunkin' Donuts having my morning coffee with my wife. Just across the street were Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. As I waited for my coffee at the ordering station, my wife offered my chair to an elderly couple and their daughter from Oklahoma. The father was a Navy man from the Korean War; the daughter was taking them to D.C. to see the Korean War Veterans Memorial. I shared with him my descriptions of the war memorials and the D.C. area, we chatted for a while and I wished them safe travels.

" I think this is a great book. Though it is fiction, this book contains many facts about the Vietnam War. The story is told from the viewpoint of two characters - Rick Hanski, who, at the young age of 17, volunteers for duty in Vietnam; and Cracker, a 2-year-old female German shepherd.
