story of Stephen Paul Campos, my story, of a reluctant U.S. Army soldier
sent to fight in Vietnam in 1968, just as the Vietnam War was escalating. After
his platoon of mostly inexperienced young men experiences a horrific “friendly
fire” tragedy two weeks into their tour of duty, a shaken Campos and his two
closest combat buddies (a common day “Three Musketeers”) make a vow to “die for each other” one another
and reunite after the war.
