You Can't Come In : a memoir of Vietnam and its aftermath
by Dan Crissman and Martin D. Alexander




Overview -
A crew chief and door gunner of an Army helicopter gunship tells the story about how one tour of duty during 1967 was vastly different from his second tour during 1969 because of political and cultural influences. Within two years the 'mission' changed from winning the war to "the hell with the war." The personal motive of many became staying alive and getting home safely. Social upheaval back in U.S.A. hung the returning war veteran out to dry, affected the military and political will to win. Congressional funding ended. Americans tired of the war that seemed never-ending. The almost twenty-year effort to support the government of the Republic of Vietnam was eventually lost to the conquering communists, who continued their onslaught of the innocents in Cambodia and Laos. This author's memoir is an attempt to reveal a first hand account of a decorated and wounded combat veteran who came home to a country that no longer cared.
