Semper Cool: One Marine's Fond Memories of Vietnam
by Barry Fixler
A great American war story Semper Cool is the wrenching, sometimes hilarious and always thought-provoking true story of a mischievous teenager who enlists in the U.S. Marine Corps seeking adventure and his father's approval and finds both, plus more danger than he ever could have imagined. Semper Cool thrusts readers into a grunt's-eye view of the blood, guts, tears and laughter of war, told by a Marine who returned home a man and a patriot. Be prepared to laugh and cry and ultimately thank God for the men and women willing to risk their lives for American freedom. Barry Fixler is a proud Vietnam Veteran ....100% of royalties from his riveting book go to wounded veterans.
