Vietnam reflections : the untold story of the Holley Boys
"Eight boys from the rural community of Holley, New York died in Vietnam. All went to the same high school. The casualty rate was one of the highest per capita of any town and school in America. Collectively, the 'Holley boys' were awarded 40 medals for combat and valor including seven Purple Hearts, the Bronze Star, Silver Star and the Vietnamese Cross for Gallantry. But they were more than soldiers and heroes. They played Little League, were Boy Scouts, went to sock-hops and performed in the high school marching band. They also drove hot-rods, drank beer, smoke, and brawled. They weren't angels. They were boys - once. Now, nearly 50 years later, their stories are told. Drawing upon over 60 interviews with family members and friends, we learn not only about the lives of these eight boys, but also about a remarkable small town you probably never heard of, before that damn war changed everything."-- back cover.
