In a conventional war, support troops stay safely behind the lines. But in Vietnam, there were no lines: no place was completely safe. The war in Vietnam changed America and every soldier who served in-country. This is the story of just one support soldier, Ted Bertson, a chaplain's assistant, and the experiences that forever changed him and his love for his country. Drafted in 1969, recent college graduate Ted hopes that by becoming a chaplain's assistant he might escape the fighting in Vietnam. It does not work. By the end of 1970 he discovers what every veteran knows: war changes the soldiers who fight and the families who wait for them.
