Publisher's Summary

21 Months, 24 Days is an engaging memoir of a blue-collar kid turned soldier. Threatened by the draft in the late 60s, he enlisted in the Army to avoid becoming a grunt, yet ended up one anyway. He endured a grueling war in Vietnam and then returned to a country too angry to care. While his journey took unexpected turns, his choices got him there, so he did his best to react positively and keep moving forward.
Udden delivers his story in a comfortable, friendly style. He conveys the experiences of basic training, advanced infantry training, and what it was like to live, work, guard, patrol, and fight in the jungle. The listener will feel the adrenalin rush of a firefight, the thrill of a wild ride dangling below a helicopter, and the humor in celebrating his 21st birthday on a firebase.
You will live through his journey exactly as he experienced it.

There’s better ones out there

The editing in this book is very choppy. Also not the best story as is seem the writer could have used more help telling his story.

Needs to be made a high quality movie.

Sincerely well told diary. I'm a cousin of the author, and our family is fairly and in some cases, beautifully characterized in descriptions. Thank you to all the families and millitary service personnel who sacrifice so much for us.
