Distant War: Recollections of Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia, will be the vehicle to the readers' understanding of a war and its aftermath that may seem distant now, but what is important is that it will make readers realize--if they haven't already--that in war, whether in the jungles of Vietnam or the sands of Iraq, in a very real sense, while who wins and who loses is obviously important, what is equally necessary is that good somehow must and shall prevail. Here are 31 stories about those who were there then and what their lives have become now--for the world to know what they suffered, how most survived, and how they overcame adversity. See the Contents listing in the preview for the people included, such as Pat Sajak, Jim Stockdale, Oliver Stone and Nick Ut. 67 photos.
