April, 1972.  Written and edited by Doug Warden and Michael Christy, it contains a wealth of information and memories.  Here are some comments on the book:

“I received my book a couple weeks ago, and I was pleasantly surprised on how professional and complete it is. You are to be commended for a great

job—I know how much time you and Michael must have put into it. What a tribute to all the C Co guys who served. I’m sure they are thrilled as well.”

The late Colonel (Ret) Bob Lindquist, original Company Commander of C Company in Vietnam, 1965.

“Thanks so much for the great work you did on “Boot to Boot”.  Certainly brings back a lot of memories and emotions.”

Colonel (Ret) Ralph Hagler, 2nd Platoon Leader, 1967.

“Contained a lot of information about the time that I was there, that I didn’t even know took place.”

Rodney Young, former Squad Leader, 1970.
