Faced with situations that are often horrific, combat infantry soldiers rarely share the experiences they believe friends and family will not be able to understand. Through My Eyes: a story of Hope allows moms, dads, friends, and family to come away with an inside view into what changes soldiers when they go to war—what these men dread, both from the enemy and from within themselves.
In this historical military memoir, you will be able to feel and see what these soldiers who served in the toughest of conditions endured: sleepless nights, ambushes, monsoons, mud, mosquitoes, leeches, land mines, snipers, friendly fire, and close combat with the enemy. Each of these men walked the daily paths of danger, bearing the stress of injury and death for their brothers-in-arms and country. Even when abandoned by many of their countrymen at home, they stayed the course, showing the strength and courage that few men are forced to find within themselves.
Vietnam is only one of many wars that are fought on various terrains and under variable circumstances, but the effect combat has on those who engage in battle remains the same.
