Product Description

CHARLEY HORSE is a 'must read' for anyone who was somehow deeply moved by the Vietnam War era, intrigued by Air Cavalry and helicopters, or fascinated by that magical process that bonds brothers-in-arms. A charley horse is a recurring, shooting pain, strain, or soreness (as opposed to our Charlie Horse unit call sign, with an "i"). This documented tour-of-duty journey took place amidst the Haight-Ashbury swirl of overdosed rock stars, desegregation hatred, Kent State shoot-outs, Pentagon Papers, Nixon Tapes, The Pill, and a host of back-in-the-world newspaper headlines that are used to introduce each article...sounding just like today's news headlines. Arranged into 52 chapters, one for each week of the standard 'hitch' or tour of duty, this compiled collection of the author's War Correspondences documents much more than the war itself. In this perspective, Mr. Macauley describes the Vietnam War from July 29, 1970 through July 27, 1971 through Warren 'Bud' McCoy's eyes - more as a contiguous process than as a series of random happenings. Rather than a narrow slice, this process takes the reader through the experience of being a 'new guy' through the g r o w t h into 'old guy', but it also chronicles the expanded military 'community' with whom they interacted, such as Naval Air fastmovers, River Rats, the Hospital Ship Sanctuary, and ship artillery; Army Intelligence, Special Forces, Corps of Engineers, 18th Surgical Hospital, and arty; Air Force fastmovers, Forward Air Controllers, and satellite analysis; Marine Corps Recon and Snipers; plus the nearby ROC detachment's recon and special interdictions (Republic of Korea). Finally, a lavender stationery thread runs through this dynamic fabric: the author's sweetheart provided her own daily documentation of her concurrent pregnancy and era angst with her correspondence -- snippets of which formed the airfield's treasured Lynne-O-Grams (un-jaded, literary, common-sensible, poetic, and comedic relief that were anxiously awaited Lotus blossoms springing forth from the oftimes macabre mess. This is about people and what they did because of, and in spite of, the Vietnam War - an irreverent, humanistic time capsule that chronicles the C Troopers -- a cast of zany characters in their mutual fling together on the lunatic fringe.
