This is the story of how a young man deals with being drafted into the United States Army in the turbulent sixties, faces the challenges of Boot Camp and Advanced Infantry Training, survives the experiences of combat and manages the adjustments of coming home to serve at a training base and then returning to civilian life. He describes the day-to-day life from the time he receives his draft notice until the day he has the honor of placing a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

His story travels from the classroom to the jungle and rice paddies where he faces life-changing actions, and he experiences moments that will be imbedded in his memory forever. He describes his transition from books to bullets, and tells the stories within the story which run from light moments to tragedy.

“Morale is low in Anzio. Send up the band!” Bob Morton stood against the railing of the ship staring at the Mediterranean water, and thought how well the sea and the desert paced themselves: how easily they overcame the clamors of wars that echoed down the wind and joined the artifacts of Roman legions. Morton recalled the changing emotional pattern that mellowed the thoughtless courage of youth and replaced it with inarticulate knowledge, unspoken understanding, and kindness, from the comradeship shared in sacrifice. He recalled the words echoed in Fort Knox, “Music is a touch with the intangible. It gives men encouragement and lightens the burden somewhat.” A tall, raw-boned infantryman walked up next to Morton and looked out over the expanse of water, “Well buddy, I reckon it’s over for us.”
