The men speaking in these pages come from vastly different backgrounds, yet many shared a similar experience: they could plainly see, even at the time, that wealth, race, education and social standing divided all too often those who would go to Vietnam from those who would not, those who might really die from those who need not worry. The telling of such things is hard. The telling of shame, fear, loss, ambivalence, anger (even righteous anger) is hard. Raising old memories to the surface is a mighty work.
