    Here is Richard Perry, one of the many men who joined the war in Vietnam, but one of the few who returned. He is placed on the front lines with his platoon, and makes friends like Peewee, Monaco, Johnson, Brew, Lobel, Sargent Simpson, and Jenkins. I can tell you now, some of these guys didn't make it. Perry is scarred with the memories of dead people, violence, and the artillery. He and his friends come from different places, and came for different reasons, but they all have the same goal: To make it out alive.
