When combat troops come home from war, we have been profoundly
changed. Some of that profound change is not so good; but some of it can
actually lend us a greater understanding of who we are, what society is
about and what international relations are about.
Our wartime experience can bring a wealth of understanding. The
intense experience of warfare leaves us with some important work to do
if we are to fully utilize the positive aspects of those days in our
life back in the world. Unchained Eagle is the chronicle of my journey
from the prisons of Hanoi to full freedom nearly three decades later.
