The Vietnam War was no ordinary time. It was a time of turbulence with women’s liberation, a new drug culture, and massive protests of government. It was a time of heroes when young men heard the call to serve their country. For hotshot fighter pilots like the author it was also a time of booze, sex and the thrill of combat. This is the story of one of those young men – a true American hero – who served two tours of duty in Vietnam flying over 450 combat missions as a fighter pilot. Fighter pilots were at the top of the pyramid. They were brash, drank too much, flew too fast, and loved all women – even if they were not their own. His stories are raw, fearsome and fraught with personal behavior that today would risk being court-martialed. Fly with him on deadly combat missions. Know what it feels like to be shot in the chest going 500 miles per hour over North Vietnam – and survive. Race taxis in Tokyo, shop in Hong Kong and meet exotic ladies of the night. Cross the North Atlantic in the dead of winter in an F-5 single-seat fighter for delivery to Tehran, Iran. A single error could leave him to die in the freezing waters below. His individual adventures, for most pilots a once in a lifetime event, are never ending experiences for this pilot. You won’t be disappointed by his stories.
