Vietnam - Marine Special Forces Units
Alex Lee commanded the Third Force Reconnaissance Company in Vietnam from 1969 to 1970.
Made up of small units of specially trained U. S.
Marines, that company
conducted long-range patrols deep in Northern I Corps (including the infamous Ashau
Valley) to gather intelligence about the North Vietnamese Army...
A Special Marine Unit in Vietnam, 1969-1970
(United States Naval Institute Special Warfare)
by Alex Lee, Alfred Gray
An intelligent effective operator who led by example,
Lee was also brash and excruciatingly honest, and in this controversial, no-hold-barred
account, he takes the wraps off this select group of courageous and intrepid Marines.
Lee tells it like it was, sparing none of the acid that alienated many
and ended his stellar military career.
My story started out as a way to release the pain and
to help me deal with the memories. I never fathomed the impact it would have
on my readers. Every reader comment I have received has been more than
favourable, even from women who professed no interest in war books. One
woman said she could not put it down and completed the reading in less than four hours.
Many readers have shared their own pains and have assured me of the positive
impact my story had in helping them deal with their own pains and memories.
I have been very humbled with the realisation that my words could have such a profound
impact on peoples lives. I never expected such favourable
response. I am not sure what I expected. I simply felt the world should hear
my story and the story of the CAP Marines. After many years of mental torment
I finally came to the conclusion that if we, as Veterans, failed to tell our stories, then
the world would never hear the truth of our war. All they would have would be the
few historical writings along with what the media chose to release. I
offer a grateful, heartfelt thanks to those who have purchased my book.
equal thanks to the multitudes of critiques... and a plea to all my fellow Veterans to
consider my words... tell your story!
Sincerely, Barry Goodson
