Item description for Somebody Moved by William C. Draper...
Overview A gripping story about one young man's journey from a small town in Oklahoma to the killing fields of Vietnam--this book will make you laugh, it will make you angry, and it will make you cry.
Publishers Description Step back in time when an unpopular war was raging and the country was deeply divided. Now focus on one young man, like thousands of others, who must leave the comfort and security of his Oklahoma roots to fight a cunning enemy in places no one heard of just a few months before. Bill Draper's riveting account of his military service in Vietnam will keep you turning page after page because these are pages from history that need to be revealed, understood, even embraced. Draper's attention to detail and vivid descriptions of combat, relationships, even death, will remain in your memory long after you finish Somebody Moved. See through this soldier's eyes as he suffers through the horrific experiences of a war they were not allowed to win, only to return home to a thankless nation. No ?Welcome Home? banners hung on Main Street and no one seemed interested in helping to ease the intense pain and humiliation. We should all be ashamed Draper brings to life this period and gives us a second chance to call these once young men, ?heroes.? Somebody Moved proclaims the message loud and clear - heroes they were and are

If you really want to know what it felt like to be a soldier in Vietnam, and, to return home unwelcomed, you must read this book. Most of us know or are related to a Vietnam Veteran. They need our understanding more than anything else. We must find a way to help those we treated so unfairly. This book gives great insight and offers ideas and ways we can help those who are still hurting. This book is great for any age ... from adolescent to mature ... it does not offend ... it just enlightens.
