Jumping from helicopters / John Stillman with Lori Stillman.

Stillman, J., (author.). Stillman, Lori. (Added Author).


In 1967, at age nineteen, John Stillman--refusing to wait for the draft--voluntarily enlisted in the Army to aid his fellow countrymen in one of the most opposed involvements in our nation's history: the Vietnam War. Quickly falling in love with the rush of being a paratrooper with the 101st Airborne, he believed his service would honorably help the South Vietnamese protect their country from the ruthless communist North and their Southern allies. But once in the volatile jungles of Vietnam, the merciless hunting and killing of the enemy, constant threat of landmines and booby traps, ambushes that could easily backfire, and deaths of his comrades made Stillman question how any man--if he survived--could ever return to his life as he'd known it.
