Private Bill Collins did not make it back to Viet Nam after his discharge from the US Army in the late Sixties to take up a career in journalism. Life interfered. However, he was back with the US Army in that capacity in Iraq and Afghanistan in the early 2000s.
He befriends a group of young journalists, among them Stars and Stripes reporter Jess Wagner as well as the beautiful and talented Dae Larson who's with CNN. There is an older journalist closer to his age, Lisabeth Newberry who reports for the Canadian paper, The Renfrew Times There are none left from the war in the Sixties.
From Baghdad to Kirkuk and points in between, from Bagram to Kandahar to Jalalabad and the inner depths of the Pech Valley he travels through these new wars all the time comparing them to his time with the military in the Viet Nam of the Sixties. He travels back to Viet Nam between Embeds, accompanied by his new friends from the present wars.
