When the US Marines were sent to South Vietnam in the 1960s, 18-year-old Monk (Frank M. Beyea) was among them. Monk offers here a vital document that illustrates his transformation from teenager to soldier. Its a portrait of a young man and his equally young Marine friends in the bleakest of roles as soldiers on battlefields selected by old men back in Washington, DC. The roads through the rice paddies to Washingtons anticipated political achievements in Vietnam were littered with the broken bodies of young Marines and soldiers.

Monks chronicle of his and his friends experiences is a powerful glimpse into teenagers experiences of modern war. Monk tells the tale in a forthright manner. No impatience and cynicism here. Just straight forward tales written in a teenagers voice about what he and his fellow Marines faced and overcame.
