Where Have All the Flowers Gone: gone to graveyards everyone
by John Guinane

Where Have All the Flowers Gone tells the tale of war soldiering and coming homethe story of the Vietnam War as seen by one soldier. Being a soldier in Vietnam left an indelible impression on John Guinane.

A Vietnam Vet, John visited a hospital on June 4, 2012, for a checkup. A male nurse was taking his blood. He was about forty years old, a college graduate who had majored in Journalism. He asked John what he was doing with his life. John told him he was writing a book about Vietnam and had just finished a chapter on the My Lai Massacre. The young man had never heard of the My Lai massacre. This was the only incentive John needed to finish the tale about his life.

Where Have All the Flowers Gone is an unbiased and concise summary of the Vietnam conflict, written in the hopes that a young reader would gain some knowledge and a better understanding of this tragic period in American history.

Why would anybody wish to write about Vietnam? Because as Santayana has warned: Those who do not learn from history are condemned to repeat it. And this nationgreat as it iscannot afford another Vietnam.
