Summary :

The year is 1968. Like thousands of other American boys, Carl Melcher is drafted and sent to Vietnam. Although his new company is infected with the same racial tensions plaguing the nation, Carl makes friends on both sides of the color line. Naively over-optimistic, Carl believes that karma and good intentions will save him and his friends, but then fate intervenes to teach Carl the real meaning of life and death. Gripping and poignant, this is an illuminating portrait of the Vietnam War written by a man who was there.
