As you consider ordering this book you might be asking yourself why should the Vietnam War—which occurred a half-century ago—matter today? It matters because there are many disturbing things the US Government hasn’t told you about the Vietnam War and doesn’t want you to know because of events happening today? Things such as all the rainbow-colored pesticides and the disabling effect they had on US service personnel. Even today in 2020 the US military is still having problems with toxic chemical exposures. In fact, all you have to do is take a look at this recent news article, “On Tuesday, Feb. 25, 2020, Rep. Mark Green (R-Tenn.) and Stephen Lynch (D-Mass.) introduced H.R. 5957, the K2 Veterans Toxic Exposure Accountability Act of 2020”. Almost a half-century after the Vietnam War and our military leaders still haven’t gotten it right.
Silent Spring – Deadly Autumn of the Vietnam War may have been written too late to help Vietnam Veterans with their toxic exposures and illnesses, but it’s not too late to help future generations of military personnel from encountering the same fate.
The book you are considering is a real-life chronicle written in sorrow with hope for future generations of soldiers. It’s a surreal voyage into everything the US government hasn’t told you about the Vietnam War and doesn’t want you to know.
What happened in Vietnam … didn’t stay in Vietnam. It came home with us!
