Brave Warriors, Humble Heroes

A Vietnam War Story

by Marjorie T. Hansen

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Through her husband’s letters from Southeast Asia about his combat missions in Vietnam and over the Ho Chi Minh Trail in Laos in 1971 and 1972, Marge Hansen shares a gripping journey into one of the most divisive and turbulent periods in the nation’s history. Brave Warriors, Humble Heroes: A Vietnam War Story captures in a flier’s words the conflict, drama, frustration, heroism, and longing for home and family that mark combat missions. Through meticulous research and compelling narrative, Marge brings to readers a chance to understand what may have been only an ongoing headline in the news for those at home or a distant episode in American history for younger readers. In her voice and Charlie’s, she captures the experience of those who serve and those who support them. For Marge and Charlie, the war was immediate and personal and has not ended; both were impacted by the legacy of Agent Orange—he from his assignment to front-line bases and she from her visit to him at one of those bases. Brave Warriors, Humble Heroes recounts the story of one war, one hero, one marriage, and one family. This book stands for all those whose voices have not been heard.

About the author
Marge Hansen became a military wife in 1958 when she married First Lieutenant Charles J. Hansen Jr., United States Air Force, a graduate of the United States Naval Academy. She shared his military experience that forever changed their lives—the Cold War, Vietnam, and the aftermath. Brave Warriors, Humble Heroes: A Vietnam War Story pays tribute to their enduring love that played out all over the world: Japan, Florida, California, Hawaii, South Vietnam, North Dakota, Texas, and even a remote jungle base in the war zone on the Laotian-Thailand border. Marge’s professional experience includes teacher in public higher education, communications instructor and education administrator for the United States Air Force, and manager in corporate marketing communications for Texas Instruments. In July 2013, she joined the Military Officers Association of America in the “Storming-the-Hill” event in Washington, speaking with senators and representatives to find a way to eliminate the “Widow’s Tax” on survivors’ military benefits. Currently she lives in the Dallas area and continues her work to seek help for military dependents whose family members were exposed to Agent Orange. She has two sons and three granddaughters.
