Nineteen-year-old Private Eddie Henderson is with Alpha Company, serving in the Quang Ngai Province. His parents died in a car accident, and he has no one, except his platoon brothers: Porter, Rocky, and Professor. None are closer than he and his best friend, team leader Mitch Drexler.
In the heat and jungles of Vietnam, as each man does the best he can to survive, he will learn that his only real purpose in this war is to protect the life of the soldier beside him. As “grunts,” they know only too well that their role here is little more than bait—to flush out NVA troops and the ruthless Viet Cong from the dangerous terrain, where disease and the elements can be as lethal as the enemy.
Between being sent from one deadly, futile search-and-destroy mission to the next, doing all they can to protect civilians, and watching their beloved brothers fall beside them in firefights—which seem to escalate on each occasion, culminating in a significant attack on an enemy base—the men reflect on their lives and views of the war; each carries his burden.
His story is of the battles he fights, the friends he loses, the person he becomes, and how he makes promises to the fallen—promises he vows to keep, whatever the cost.
The emotional tale could prompt questions that may jolt his combat brothers—what were those battlefield promises and did he keep them?
