A Marine in Vietnam, Robert Tecklenburg returned thirty-five years later to the two villages (Thua Luu and Nouc Ngot in rural Phu Loc District) where he served as a member of a Combined Action Team. Their mission was to defend the villages’ inhabitants and conduct pacification and civic action projects while living among them.
It is a story of war, memories, and recovery—about the people he left behind, many of them just children—and the world he found on his return. He looks at how the long war ultimately impacted the country of Vietnam and its people.
R.L. Tecklenburg has written numerous articles for magazines and newspapers, along with three books and a play. He and his wife Rebecca make their home in Northern Virginia.
