Re: Clemans on Van Straten, 'A Different Face of War: Memories of a Medical Service Corps Officer in Vietnam'

The author began his career a few years before I did and we worked together in a number of different assignments during our careers. I am also a retired MSC officer. Until I became aware of the book and read it, like my friend Doug Moore, I was unaware of Jim's assignment that led to the book even though I was during part of his assignment fulfilling similar duties at the opposite end of Vietnam in the Delta as an advisor to the Vietnamese 9th RVN Division. I was in that position until a few months after the Tet offensive in 1968.

Re: Carr on Piombo, 'The US Military in Africa: Enhancing Security and Development'

Well written and insightful reply from a man whom I personally know has lived some of these effects of policy in Africa. This review is detailed and lays out an excellent argument for reading the book, while including what shortcomings it does contain. I look forward to more from the future Dr Carr.
