The chaos of war is a horrific background for coming of age, a trial by fire testing all who experience it, and changing them forever.
Contrary to Government denial during the Vietnam War, the U.S. Army regularly sent Special Forces sniper teams into Laos and Cambodia. Their assignments took them deep into enemy territory. Many teams never returned.
Heirs of Honor is the memoir of Lucky, the youngest member of one of those killing teams. A hero worshipping kid awed by the more experienced men around him, he was more than willing to prove himself to them and ignore the damage to his young soul.
He was only 20 when introduced to the Special Forces team, and “star-struck” at being invited to join them. Their journey into the madness that only exists in war is chronicled in Lucky’s journals, as well as the toll on his spirit, as he grows from innocent High School kid to scarred warrior. Heirs of Honor is a story of men enduring the horror of war, and their struggle to retain their sanity, as they come of age.

As real as it gets
The narrator succeeded in getting me totally caught up in the story... and what a story!
Now I think I understand my relatives who were Vietnam War vets a lot better.
