Meeting the Enemy by Suel D. Jones

Suel D. Jones served as a rifleman in Vietnam with the First Marine Battalion, Third Marine Regiment of the Third Marine Division near the DMZ from early May of 1968 until he was severely wounded in April of 1969. His memoir, Meeting the Enemy: A Marine Goes Home (BookSurge, 235 pp., $25.99, paper), is a well written account that tells Jones’ Vietnam War story, as well as the disillusionment and psychological distress he felt after returning home, and his cathartic trip back to Vietnam in 1998.
