Strength in Survival

Just after graduating high school, Richie Perry found himself headed off to the Vietnam War. At 17 his dream of becoming a writer had been postponed because his family could not afford college. Through the many trials and tribulations he encountered, he learns what is most important-staying alive.

"My plans, maybe just my dreams really, had been to go to college, and to write. . . . All the other guys in the neighborhood thought I was going to college. I wasn't, and the army was the place I was going to get away from all the questions."

You read about Vietnam in your history books. Now, don't miss this opportunity to walk alongside Perry and live the war for yourself.
