In writing this memoir, I sought to showcase a unique and unusual Army combat engineer unit, whose dedication and resolve helped to save many lives during the Vietnam War.

This unusual memoir captures the sights, sounds and experiences of a young combat engineer from within the jungles of South Vietnam, where hard work, grueling conditions and enemy encounters forced this 19-year-old to grow up fast. The detailed account also highlights the achievements and dedicated spirit of a unique Engineer outfit, which evolved from a rag-tag platoon of Land Clearing pioneers, to eventually achieve full Company status within an unprecedented new battalion, comprised entirely of Land Clearing units. Essentially, this is a nuts-and-bolts and sweat-and-blood window view of a very different sort of wartime experience.

  Excellent Read , 02/05/2018
Reviewer: SFC (ret) Bobby Garner
I enjoyed the history of your unit and the war experiences in print. I was a (Combat Engineer 12-B) Demo Man in my 2 tours in Vietnam. The 1st with the 25 Inf Div supporting the infantry in the bush. My 2nd tour was with the Americal Div. with a good deal of my time supporting a Rome Plow land clearing unit as a Demo Man. During my 20 years in the army I was a COMBAT ENGINEER. The land clearing units were never Combat Engineer & the operators never Combat Engineers.
