A riveting survival story, wirtten in his "in your face" style-from his battalion being ambushed and nearly all killed in the jungles of Medina, October 12, 1967, to his "mooning" the North Vietnamese as they shelled him on his way to the outhouse, you will not put this book down. On March 18, 1968; George was caught in crossfire in Operation Ford, North of Phue Pi, and shot 3 times in the hip with an AK-47.

Publishers Description
Marine Sergeant George P. Hutchings landed in Vietnam in 1967. Fighting near the northern Province of Quan Tri, he was deployed on hundreds of combat missions, even the dreaded nighttime "Scorpion" maneuvers. A riveting survival story, written in his matter-of-fact "in your face" style - from his entire battalion being ambushed and nearly all killed in the jungles of Medina, October 12, 1967, to his "mooning" the North Vietnamese as they shelled him on his way to the outhouse, you will not put this book down. Operation Ford, north of Phue Pi, March 18, 1968; George was caught in crossfire and shot three times in the hip with an AK-47. Acting dead as a Vietcong stuck him with a bayonet, George shot him in the head. Medi-vacced out, George was awarded the Purple Heart. Follow George's journey from a dysfunctional youth, to seeing his friends blown to pieces in the muddy battlefields of Southeast Asia, to his difficult readjustment to civilian life. His heart bare, George shares how he fell in love and after years of searching, discovered his purpose in life, which led him to his present day international projects delivering much needed medical supplies to countries in Africa. Perhaps his greatest survival skill is to never let situations get him demoralized.
