Grandad, "Tell Us About Vietnam?" Memoir of a Vietnam Veteran
Black and White Version
by Danny L. Akers
Not for Profit
Some things should be told. Some things shouldn't. This book is simply a collection of my memories that still remain from the year I spent in Vietnam, '68-69. That year was, and still is, a very special time in my life. I do not discuss or talk about that year very much. Now having five grandsons who bombard me with questions about my time in Vietnam, I wrote this book for them and attempted to write it so they could understand a small segment of their Grandad's history. It was easier to write it than it was to tell it. I could have written much more, but did not. Some things shouldn't be told, especially to my five wonderful grandsons.
Born in Pikeville, KY. After graduating high school, was drafted into the Army. Spent one year in Vietnam after arriving there on my 20th birthday in 1968. Will always remember my brothers-at-arms during that year of my life. Finally went to college at the young age of 38 at nights, week-ends, and summers to complete a BS in Industrial Education and principal certification at Morehead State University. Now retired from serving as an automotive technology instructor at Millard Area Technology Center. Married with two children and five grandsons and still residing in Pikevile, KY
