I wish I could talk to him now.
Have you read any books about war? I suggest the following:
- WWII - "With the Old Breed: At Peleliu and Okinawa", by E.B. Sledge
- Korea - "The Last Stand of Fox Company", by Bob Drury and Tom Clavin
- Vietnam - "Matterhorn: A Novel of the Vietnam War", by Karl Marlantes
The first two are first hand accounts, while the third is fiction (which I just finished this week). All three will make your hair stand on end.

Try William Manchester’s ‘Goodbye, Darkness”.
Very riveting account of his experience(s) as a wartime Marine in the Pacific.

Also try any of the Books by Eric Hammel about Guadalcanal and Korea. Excellent reads.

Try; War’s End
By Charles W. Sweeney
He flew the photography plane over Hiroshima and the Drop plane over Nagasaki.
He wanted the true story put in print to nagate revisionist history.
