There were no marching bands welcoming home returning troops from Vietnam, no ticker-tape parades for its heroes and no celebrations in Time Square.  Instead, returning Vets were confronted with indifference, silent disapproval, criticism, hostility and even contempt for their lack of cleverness in not avoiding service in a war zone.

Most returning Vietnam warriors were bewildered by the reactions of their fellow countrymen; but, then how could they possibly comprehend the psychological phenomenon which was only beginning to take hold and would later be named the "Vietnam Syndrome", a phenomenon which, at its extremes, was manifested in a revulsion to all things military?  Even those who were proud of the returning servicemen and women were hardly effusive in their praise and greeted them with only muted enthusiasm.

This book is a tribute to those who actually fought the Vietnam War and became collateral victims of a wrenching cultural war, not of their own making.

Last Full Measure of Devotion had its inspirational roots in Donald J. Farinacci's service in the Army during the Vietnam War.  By providing approximately 20 profiles of highly decorated Vietnam warriors, many killed or badly wounded in action, the author has provided his anthem to a generally unsung generation of heroes.
