This is Jim Miller on the way back from the Island of the Coconut Monk in May of 1969 and he wore those yellow glasses day and night all the time and he was stoned all the time too. I dont know how he got away with all the things he got away with.
During my second year in Vietnam I began to rent an apartment on Trang Hung Dao, Saigon's main street, and it was a place where war correspondants, civilians, aid workers, and right thinking GIs would gather in their off duty hours.
I was forced to learn how to drive a stick shift when I was in vietnam. I'd never driven one before, but everybody had to learn how to drive those and this is me on teh way to make a distribution in Cho Lan late in my tour.
