    Barry Fixler(Author)
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.

    What a wonderful recollection of one mans bravery and dedication. The world needs more people like Barry. Semper Cool indeed.

    A cracking good book made even better by the fact that it was a true story. It also highlighted the neglect of returning soldiers by the US Government; that was truly disgraceful treatment.

    I enjoyed this book but would have rather had more Vietnam detail than the update in later chapters.
