According to the book description of Incoming, “1969
was a momentous year for the world and especially America. It was a year when man first set foot on the moon and in an equally
amazing feat, the New York Mets won baseballs coveted World Series. While earth shaking events were happening two hundred
thousand miles from home or deep within the confines of Shea Stadium, men of every race, education and age group were fighting
and dying 12,000 miles from home in Americas most unpopular war, Vietnam.
Today, 40 years later, writer, husband and Veteran Jack Manick reaches into his
soul and resurrects the fear, tension, foreboding, laughter and terror that he and his fellow "Band of Brothers"
felt as they walked the jungles and forests of the Central Highlands of Vietnam in 1969. While in the "Bush", he
carried a pack, a medical aid bag, two knives, three grenades, a rifle, pistol and an unbreakable commitment to save the lives
of his fellow soldiers, even at the cost of his own.
The story of Jack "Doc" Manick and his fellow soldiers is one of survival...survival
in a country laden with malaria, crawling with venomous snakes, scorpions, rats, giant centipedes and tigers and dominated
by an enemy determined "Not to lose the War!"
