Vietnam in Verse: Poetry for Beer Drinkers
Michael D. Mullins  More Info

One reader of Vietnam in Verse: Poetry for Beer Drinkers said, “I am a Vietnam Veteran, and I attended the 25th Vietnam Reunion in Kokomo, Indiana in Sept 2007. I met a tall man dressed in old style US Army fatigues, Vietnam era; moreover, what struck me was his little sales trailer stationed just to the left of the stage; hence my meeting Mike "Moon" Mullins. We shook hands, hugged and welcomed each other home, its a Nam thing that we do. I perused "Moons" wares and read his POW poster, decided to buy "Vietnam in Verse". Later that day I sat down in our camp area and read half of it, passed it to my buddy and he tore into it as well. I looked at my buddy and he looked at me, and Roger says to me, "Tom, this guy has seen combat, it's like he is telling my very own story, brother!!!" Mike's poems are rare gifts to us Vets, he gets it right down to the marrow of the bone with us! The biggest gift that Mike has been blessed with, is the ability to allow others who were not in Vietnam, to clearly understand his/our emotions as we went through our individual experiences in The Vietnam War.”
