Bonjour Vietnam

I just wanted to get a new link up on the Scribbler for this haunting favorite of mine.

If you don’t understand French, try this version of the song by the beautiful Belgian-born singer, Pham Quynh Anh, and sub-titled lyrics in English.

  1. Nam buddy of mine sent me a new book, on Khe Sahn. A Patch of Ground. Haven’t read it yet, but I’ll let you know.

    I always figured that Khe Sahn was the main reason I ended up in 2/26 and not some other unit. Warm bodies needed, y’know.

  2. Of course Khe Sahn was a full year before my involvement in the SEA war games. All I know about it is from Michael Herr’s Dispatches, which is impressive but probably stretched. He made it all seem kind of pointless.

  3. He also recommended The Last Stand of Fox Company, which I intend to peruse.
