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.

If you think you might be interested in contributing and giving the New Zealand perspective, you can contact Bill by email at                                                          This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
