I've written about the battle for Lang Vei for forty years. I hope you grow to love "Ash," the valiant defenders of the Lang Vei Special Forces camp, and the determined enemy as much as I do.
I'm the original Forrest Gump. Served in the US Army, White House, US Senate. Bronze Star Medal and Purple Heart from Somalia. Survived 9/11 attack on the Pentagon. Taught grade school on Gila River Indian Community (Ira Hayes' great-nephew was in my second grade class). Still married to my high school sweetheart.
