A shy, immature, reluctant young soldier finds himself on a darkened jet, making his descent onto an airfield in Vietnam.

What Larry Long didn’t realize, however, was that he was also descending into a hole of pot, booze, and pills—one that would take him years to escape.
In this memoir, he looks back at his army service, beginning with the worst eight weeks of his life: basic training. During that time, he didn’t make any friends or gain any self-confidence. All he did was long for home.
Having received his draft notice, he was on that plane because he had to be—it was not about fighting communism or fighting for freedom.
After experiencing the hell of war, he returned home and made friends with a co-worker who turned him on to something called amphetamines. The only problem was they prevented him from sleeping, but smoking marijuana solved the problem.
Join the author as he recalls the evils of war and how the Lord transformed him from being someone whose body took him where he didn’t want to go to a man whose spirit takes his body to where it is happy to go.
