Th ere is an insurgency, and he and his Green Beretshave undergone extensive training for the mission of assisting the Vietnameseand Montagnard people in their fi ght against communist terrorism. Whatthey fi nd is a challenge that resists rapid progress and a cause that leaves destructionand death in its wake. Corns returns four years later as a major and operations offi cerfor the Army/Navy Mobile Riverine Force in the Mekong Delta. Th e confl icting militaryforces are larger, losses to both the insurgent Viet Cong and to American Forcesare greater, and the sacrifi ces of men around him beg the question of what will it costto win and will it be worth the losses. Now a retired Lieutenant General, Corns looksback at those days as a young offi cer to share the worth, to him, of that experience—histime in Vietnam with men like himself.
