    I have just finished reading Guns Up! by Johnnie M Clark. I am a combat veteran from Afghanistan (2010). I was taken under fire twice while there and exposed to some roadside bombings, and I thought I knew what combat was like until I read this book. Mr. Clark and his mates knew the real thing. As a soldier I was humbled by the amazing and rare courage and concern for their fellows that was a daily commonplace in Mr.Clark's Vietnam experience. I also appreciate the hand of God seen throughout the book; it has changed my perspective on my own experiences. Thank you Mr. Clark for helping to open my eyes. Reply

    Thank you Roger. I really appreciate it. I don't look on line very often, I tend to get too angry at the liberal garbage so this was a rare moment for me and I didn't even know this site existed. Hope you can check out some of my other books. Semper Fi, Johnnie Clark Reply

      Just read Gun's Up... Couldn't put it down and finished in about 2 days. Can't tell you the impact it had. I couldn't believe it was real (it was written too well to be a memoir, just like a novel) until I got to the end when you tied it all together and explained who everyone was. Thanks for the scriptures. I've read some great memoirs. This one will stand out for me. I look forward to reading your other books. Reply

    Johnnie gave me and my MG squad inspiration through Afghanistan. So many similar stories. You saved our lives man. Love you from some 2/6 gunners. Reply
