"Once a Marine - Always a Marine"
"Une fois qu'une Marine - Toujours une Marine"
“ The only protection you maggots will have in Vietnam is the high standard of training as given to you at great expense by the Marine Corps. Your only chance of survival is to become a mean and nasty fucker, just like me! However, I would strongly advise you to develop a keen awareness, a kind of sixth sense, or to put it bluntly, eyes in the cheeks of your ass! “

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.
