What People Are Saying About Sarge's Book:
Hi Sarge, Thanks for the autographed copy of your book. I just finished it and brother it was great! It brought back a lot of good memories and taught me a lot of new things. I know you said it was "fiction", but because I have listened to your music so much I saw a lot of "Sarge" in the stories. I think it will help a lot of brothers feel better and educate the civilians to know what Viet Nam really was. Again, a great work!! Bill Russell
Just finished your book “Seven Short Stories of
the Vietnam War”,I have read many books on the war, but never have I felt like
I was In Country. This book is one I could not put down. I was right there
watching everything that happened as it unfolded by the authors’ pen. You say
fiction, I say reality, at its best. You did a magnificent job.
Congratulations! I wish you much success. May this book help other vets to heal
as I’m sure it has helped you to tell your story. Lonnie Patsy J Tackett
