    Backbone, Brannon, George F.
    4 Brannon, George F. Backbone
    Brannon Enterprises, Inc. 1995 0964530902 / 9780964530904 softcover with plastic comb binding used 152 pages 
    from the preface: "Backbone is the true story of a man, George "Bud" Brannon, who was born into the period considered the genesis of these modern-day problems. Small of physical stature, deserted by his family, thrown into the roughest of occupations, drawn into the nation's most unpopular war, he applied brawling and hard drinking as weapons to conquer a life he had not asked for.

    He gained little until he realized these experiences were revealing that God was most important. In time he found that his sole strength was faith in God through His son, Jesus Christ. The revelation brough him peace.

    6 Gullickson, Gary D. Vietnam: Our Story, One On One
    1992 0963157221 / 9780963157225 VV Publishing softcover used 532 pages, 5 1/2 inches by 8 1/2 inches tall 
    from the cover: "Although years have passed, the memory of Vietnam is still very vivid in the minds of Americans, especially those who fought the many battles and especially those still waiting to come home. For many of the authors this is the first time they have told their story. These are true stories of America's finest, sent to war to defend America's principles, ideals and hopes, only to come to face another battle. An end to the pain, suffering and misunderstanding of the Vietnam War and its Veterans must come. This book offers an opportunity for healing for the Vietnam Veteran and, for us, as a nation. In reading these stories, you will gain understanding and insight to the realities of the Vietnam War, not the Generals or the policy makers, but from the men and women who fought the war and those who helped keeped the war machine running. Included are stories by Medal of Honor recipient Sammy L. Davis who travels widely to give a special message to Veterans and America; Barbara Liscomb who served two tours duty as a military nurse and tells you what it means to truly give with heart and soul; and Vietnam Era Veteran Matthew Stevenson who's chapter, called "Misfit", tells of feelings felt by many who did not get to Vietnam. This is an important story of the Vietnam Era Veterans and their service to the country.

    This book is meant to help each Veteran who wrote and in turn, help many others."
