Rate this:
When the 160 men of Charlie Company were drafted by the US Army in 1966, they were part of the wave of conscription that would swell the American military to eighty thousand combat troops in Vietnam by the height of the war in 1968. In the spring of 1966 the war was still popular, and the draftees of Charlie Company saw their service as a rite of passage. But by December 1967, when the company returned home, only thirty men remained--and they were among the first veterans of the war to be spit on and harassed by war protesters as they arrived back home. The Boys of '67 examines the experiences of a company from the only division in the Vietnam era to train and deploy together in similar fashion to World War II's famous 101st Airborne Division. As Wiest shows, the fighting that Charlie Company saw in 1967 was nearly as bloody as the better publicized battles of Ia Drang Valley and Hamburger Hill.
