Unfortunate Son
Wartime Letters From My Father.
  103,600 Oklahomans served in the military during the Vietnam War. These were
everyday young men. Most of them were fresh out of high school, and yet they were
sent halfway around the world to risk their lives in the jungles of Southeast Asia.
One of these soldiers was my father.
  After being drafted, my father spent two years in United States Army. Much of this
time was spent in Vietnam. In his free time he wrote dozens of letters home. The
letters are an amazing glimpse into the mindset of an average American soldier
during what was arguably one of the most divisive times in American history. Many
important topics of the day are mentioned in the letters, such as, America's fear of
the proliferation of communism, the Nixon administration and the anti-war movement.
