More About Semper Cool by Barry Fixler
 
 
 
Overview
The wrenching, sometimes hilarious and always thought-provoking memoir of a mischievous teenager who enlists in the U.S. Marine Corps seeking adventure and his father's approval and finds both, plus more danger than he ever could have imagined. Barry Fixler gets molded into a Marine at Parris Island and sent to Vietnam, where he is assigned to a company that would soon etch its place in Marine Corps lore at the legendary Siege of Khe Sanh. With its vivid imagery, Semper Cool thrusts readers into a grunts-eye view of the blood, guts, tears and laughter of war, as told by a Marine who returned home a proud, patriotic man. Be prepared to laugh and cry and ultimately thank God for the men and women willing to sacrifice their lives for the freedoms that so many Americans enjoy.
