More than 25 years after the official end of the Vietnam War, "Dear America" allows us to witness the war firsthand through the eyes of the men and women who served in Vietnam. In this collection of over 200 letters, they share their first impressions of the rigours of life in the bush, their longing for home and family, their emotions over the conduct of the war, and their ache at the loss of a friend in battle. Revealing the complex emotions and daily realities of fighting in the war, these accounts offer a personal portrait of the many faces of Vietnam veterans.
