About this product
- DescriptionWhen will the war finally come to an end? Home Front: Viet Nam and Families at War recounts the private ordeals of several families who bore the brunt of America's war in Viet Nam. Their experiences, an ongoing tragedy since the last U.S. soldiers left Vietnamese soil, reveal the physical and psychological wounds of war --- wounds that don't discriminate between soldier and family. From the backwoods of Maine to the rugged wide open landscape of Montana, we meet a dozen soldiers and their families and hear their stories. Author Willard D. Gray kws the fallout firsthand. His oldest son spent two years and eighteen consecutive days in Viet Nam as a BAMC trained medic, most of his tour was served in the bush or in the gristmill of an evacuation hospital. When Willard's son returned home in April 1970 without an horable discharge, the Gray family endured several months of tension, anger, and disappointment. Tommy Gray had come home a completely changed young man. Willard's crusade on behalf of his son soon grew to include others in the community who had also been traumatized and marginalized by the war. A national tragedy became a personal quest.
- Author BiographyWillard D. Gray was born and raised in rural Illinois. He successfully completed a career in the Army and later owned his own automotive business. His previous work was a novel based on a true story entitled End of a Silence: Full Moon over Fox Prairie.
