Vietnam: No Regrets by J. Richard Watkins

J. Richard Watkins’ Vietnam: No Regrets: One Soldier’s Tour of Duty (Bay State Publishing, 244 pp., $17.95, paper) is a well-written, mostly chronological account of the author’s 1969-70 tour of duty in Vietnam with A Company, 1/27th, the Wolfhounds of the Army’s 25th Infantry Division.

Watkins, a VVA member from Brockton, Mass., begins with his arrival in Cu Chi in late November of ’69, and ends with coming home late in October of ’70. In between, Watkins saw more than his share of action. His website is www.vietnamnr.com
