John B. Morgan received orders to report for duty in Okinawa, Japan, in March 1975. The orders were a surprise, but as a Marine officer and pilot, he went wherever he was ordered. Before he left, he kissed his two sleeping girls goodbye, trying to etch an image of both of them in his brain. He knew anything could happen. Very few people at the airport were in the military, and it was a time when serving your country was not viewed in a positive light. It wasn't uncommon for a member of the military wearing a uniform in public to be called a baby killer or a murderer. Morgan recalls his time on a Navy ship in the South China Sea, waiting for orders to evacuate Phnom Penh, Cambodia, and Saigon, Vietnam. He also shares his adventures on other Navy ships, Marine helicopters, on military bases, and interesting places throughout the world. Although the author concedes that many men and women experienced more trauma, he provides a unique perspective as a young Marine Corps pilot who flew in the last two operational missions of the Vietnam War.
