General Note / OCR

This is a CD copy digitized from the era audio fomat which was originally recorded largely under rocket attack by a woman enlisted in the U.S. Army who was stationed 3 years at Long Binh, Vietnam. You can hear the incoming rounds as they pierce the night with that thud...all too familiar to those who served. While edited only for time, no effort whatsoever has been made to edit or enhance the content in order to ensure the archival accuracy of this product. It is hoped that this CD may be used as a tool for understanding the pressues and pain of a war that affected so many, many lives. From the bunker conditions to the children and the orphanages, it is a complete record of life under war.
