F.N.G., Revised Edition by Donald Bodey

F.N.G., Revised Edition by Donald Bodey. This is a novel of a draftees one-year deployment in Vietnam. Bodey is particularly good at describing the interactions between soldiers especially those who are new to an unit [the FNG's of the title] and short timers near the end of their time. There really isn't much plot here this is more a book of atmosphere. The new material is an opening chapter which is set in the present day where the narrator must decide what to do with his grandsons deployment to Iraq.


Is available through Abebooks.
