Overview
-

• Life on the frontlines in ‘Nam as experienced by a man who never gave up, no matter the cost

Dave Walker enlisted in the U.S. Army at seventeen, full of patriotism and eager to play his part in Vietnam. Trained for long-range patrol (LRP) operations, he received a debilitating shrapnel wound to his eye barely a month after arriving in Vietnam.

Medically discharged and sent home to a country he decreasingly recognised, Walker, now missing an eye, manoeuvred his way back to the jungles of Vietnam, where he survived another eighteen months conducting patrols and special operations with an elite Ranger unit.
