    Perhaps a little disjointed, don't confuse this with "Paco's Story." It portrays a "down and dirty" in the mud paddies story of "A Day In the Life." Surely some of the accounts are composites are a little contrived, but this does not take away from the veracity of the overall tale. Talking with vets (I was ready to go, but got turned down because of a football injury. Maybe it's just as well I stayed stateside.), I find their stories eerily similar to Heinemann's. The re-visit to a newer but not necessarily better 'Nam enhances the story. While humanizing the adversaries, it does not depart from the theme of why were there and how we failed to succeed. Sometimes I get the feeling that we didn't really lose---we were tired, and time just ran out.
