Going Back: An Ex-marine Returns to Vietnam

Front Cover
In February 1967, W.D. Ehrhart was sent to Vietnam as an 18-year-old Marine Corps volunteer. In December 1985, Ehrhart and two friends, both also poets and teachers, returned to Vietnam by that government's invitation. Very few Americans have been to Vietnam since the end of the war, and barely a handful of those few have been writers. This is his story of Vietnam ten years after.
