Surviving Vietnam is not your typical military rendition of fighting in Vietnam. Although it has some blood and broken bones, they didn't come from fighting the enemy. This book takes you through Victor's Basic Training—boot camp—technical training, to Vietnam, and back home. It's filled with many anxious, suspenseful, and exciting moments. Victor navigates the stress of Basic training along with several Training Instructor quirks. A brief reprieve in the Air Force Drum and Bugle Corps provides several unusual memories. After a, basically, uneventful technical training, he agonizes through several "pass the buck" episodes which deny him the right to delay his Vietnam tour until after his son is born. Combat training prior to Vietnam departure adds to his memory bank. A Christmas Eve departure leaves many questions unanswered. While trying to stay alive from enemy attacks, he narrowly escapes severe racial tension outbreaks. One of his friends didn't—twice. His martial arts training leads to broken bones while a scuba diving excursion almost cost his life. A welcome break in the war is a dream trip to Thailand that fills his mind and camera with memories. Suffering repeated episodes with jelly fish stings, over a ten month period, while snorkel diving collecting unique shells ultimately end in heartbreak. Even trying to leave Vietnam, he falls victim to prejudice and has to make a difficult decision. Through several life-threatening situations, this fast paced, action packed book will keep you glued to the pages to find out how he survived Vietnam.
