Bill Brown - American Vietnam Vet - Author
We have been contacted by Bill who wrote "Our Vietnam Wars: as told by 100 Vets Who Served". Here's the Amazon link you can click on https://www.amazon.com/dp/B079P35BT5 . It isn't another 'war book'. It contains short, individual stories of vets - Army, Navy Air Force, Marines and even 2 Aussies, who he was able to connect with and interview. It has been ranked in the top 10 since it was released in February. He is now writing a 2nd volume and would like to fill in a few gaps that are in the first one. He was specifically looking for some input from New Zealand Vietnam Vets.
