Gary Skogen’s tour in Vietnam (1971–72) was the best year of his life. Living with fellow CID investigators in an isolated hooch overlooking the South China Sea at the U.S. base at Chu Lai, Skogen enforced military drug laws during his working hours and yet managed to pursue a life of perfect hedonism—far from the farm life in southwestern North Dakota where he grew up. With unlimited access to cheap beer, a wide variety of compliant Vietnamese women, and a jeep he had somehow commandeered, Skogen perfected his criminal investigative skills at a time when U.S. troop morale had reached its nadir.
This unconventional, unheroic, and unapologetic book is not a typical Vietnam memoir. Together with 80 percent of the two million men and women who served in Vietnam, Skogen spent his time behind the scenes at a large support base. He did not slog on midnight patrols through Viet Cong tunnels or rice paddies studded with booby traps. He spent his year investigating the men who endangered the lives of their fellow soldiers by giving themselves over to unrestrained drug use.
Skogen’s gritty narrative proves that some whose names are incised on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial wall died in less than heroic circumstances. Backed by impeccable research in the files of the National Archives and Records Administration, this unromanticized account reveals the sordidness of the war in its late phases, and questions the validity of seeing all Vietnam veterans as victims. NOT ALL HEROES-An Unapologetic Memoir of The Veitnam War, 1971-72-Gary Skogen
Some people do the right thing for the wrong reasons. Deric Lostutter is seemingly one of those people. A self-described "anti-rape activist", his questionable methods of shaming women who openly criticize him have put him into the same category of the misogynists he claims to despise. Has his online popularity corrupted him or was he always a bad guy riding a white horse for popularity? You can decide for yourself. His ex-girlfriend "Piper" will be joining us to tell of her seven year relationship with Deric and how he targeted her using revenge for daring to call him out on his hypocrisy. Choose your heroes wisely.
