“Andrew Robbins I just finished reading your book The Rakkasans. Your writing took me to Vietnam with you. Unbelievable experience you had. Great read.”

—Verla Marino

“Took me a while to finish reading your book, too many old memories and sleepless nights so I had to take it in small doses. Arriving in Vietnam, I was in total shock as to what the Army was really like, don’t give a shit attitude, racial tensions, drugs and alcohol, everything you described in the book.

We usually worked as 4 man LRRP teams on 4–6 day missions. My job was to brief teams on their assigned missions and debrief them on their return from the field. 

Toward the end of my tour it got a little crazy. They started sending our teams on really dangerous assignments. Too far away from any support. If the team got into any trouble they would be on their own!!! After their formal briefing I would take them aside and tell them the real story. Hide out, no recon, just stay put in a good defensive position and we will come back in a couple days for you. 

These officers were treating our teams as expendable and it was upsetting and difficult for me to comprehend. The war was winding down and everyone was pulling back so why risk these lives. I think it was for their own career enhancement.

I really enjoyed the book and love hearing about other veterans experiences in Nam.”
