The General's Driver - A Vietnam Soldier Remembers
Eric Ladd, Owner/Editor of Outlaw Magazine, Bozeman, Montana
Dave Scottâ€™s book is a riveting personal journal about life, the power of war and the truths of being human. The book is a rare firsthand account of whatâ€™s itâ€™s like to not only be front line in the Vietnam War but also struggle with lifeâ€™s troubles and the beauty of owning choices and seeing the potential in change. This book is a great reminder of each personâ€™s struggle to get through life and the impact war has not only the lifeâ€™s that are lost but the ones who survive and carry on the memories.
I suppose at some time we all consider writing a book on something extraordinary that happened in our lives and upon hearing oneâ€™s story, someone is always saying, â€œYou should write a book about thatâ€. I decided after 50 years to do just that.
This book started out as nothing more than what I was calling a â€œnarrativeâ€. I believe and hope it has turned out to be a little bit more than that.
It was written
mainly for my children, members of my family and what few friends I have left alive. There is nothing more at issue here than to give its readers an idea of this soldierâ€™s experiences in Vietnam.
I have not forgotten the men I knew. The faces I remember; the names on the â€œWallâ€. I cherish those relationships, those memories both good and bad. They have stayed with me every minute of every day since I left Vietnam.
If it wasnâ€™t for the ultimate sacrifice that some of those great men gave, I would not be here today to tell my small part in what an experience it was, to say the least.
May God Bless those men.
I am discounting this book to the price of "$15.00 until I return from my Kayak trip this summer. An order will be shipped out with in 2 days of receipt of the order.
