At some time in our lives, some of us face hardships and heartaches and are forced to face devastating tragedies that completely change who we become. The decisions we make at that time have a profound effect on the rest of our lives. Sam Gaylord will take us from the foothills of Southern Indiana to the steamy jungles of Vietnam—from the rice paddies near the South China Sea to the jungle near the DMZ.
However, do not mistake this as just another book about Vietnam. Sam Gaylord grew up in the heartland of America. He believed in the American flag, apple pie, and “God Bless the USA.” As a young man, he believed and trusted in the government, joined the United States Marines, and served in Vietnam. He wanted to fight for his country like his dad and uncles. Soon after arriving in Vietnam, he realized that his country had betrayed him. This is his story.

Sam Gaylord has a college degree in business administration. For several years, he worked as a representative for America’s veterans. Currently, he is a self-employed businessman who has dedicated his life to helping disabled veterans.
Sam knows that America’s combat veterans have no voice in Washington. He knows what it is like to face job discrimination due to his service-connected disabilities. As a disabled combat veteran, Sam knows firsthand the difficulties of supporting a family. He wants America to know that disabled combat veterans are receiving compensation under an archaic system, a system that ignores today’s economics. Seriously wounded combat veterans are sent home and forgotten.
