Southlands Snuffys

Book by: Sergeant Walker

Summary

For the Marine Corps grunts, the Snuffys, in the Southland of Vietnam, Riverine warfare in the Delta region took on many different shapes and forms. The coastal islands, mangrove and nipa-palm swamps, creeks, rivers,the bewildering maze of inland waterways, and the Vietnamese jungle, imposed an extraordinary military challenge.

Avant Propos

 

 

"You fucking maggots best come to rapidly understand that my beloved Marine Corps just ain’t no place for being goddamn emotional! Charlie sure as fuck won’t be emotional when he is smashing your nuts with a rock! So, stop your pussy snivelling and wipe away those goddamn baby tears, for you aint quite dying yet! Now! Lift your goddamn loads like the Marines you wanna become, and let’s run the whole fucking twenty five klicks again, for doing it once just aint enough!"

Our Drill instructor, "Gunny Capes”, introduction to battle fitness,USMCRD Parris Island,

South Carolina,1966.

*****

The duo of books, Southlands Snuffys, relate to a relatively short period taken from one person’s history.

The use of the French Language for titling each paragraph is a tribute for long departed good friends.
