"Once a Marine - Always a Marine"
"Une fois qu'une Marine - Toujours une Marine"
Compiled from my 1966 to 1967 Vietnam service diary.
In the winter of 1965, Canadians with the intent of volunteering to fight in Vietnam started crossing the border into the United States, and it has been estimated that in the region of 23000 men, and women, had crossed the border for that reason by 1975. Not all who applied were accepted, but those who were entered various branches of the US Military.
The majority of these Canadian volunteers served in South Vietnam, and their only memorial to doing so being located in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. It is called : “ The North Wall “.
This novel is dedicated to my friend, Corporal "Bayou" Lejeune, a Cajun, killed in action on our Mike boat in the Plain of Reeds, Vietnam.
Ce roman est dédié à mon ami, Corporal "Bayou" Lejeune, un cajun, tué en action sur notre Mike bateau dans la Plaine des Joncs, Vietnam
