Have you read "MATTERHORN"? If you haven't you should give it a try, great book.

I read the book first then urged Nancy to read it, we both thought it was exceptional, and we each came at it from opposite sides of the spectrum.
Captain, did you follow up with Marlantes' other book, What It Is Like to Go To War? That's his reflection on the experience, and connects the dots inside of Matterhorn.

Apologies for slight tangent in this great thread. "Dai Uy" was the correct VN title for CPT. 2LT was "Thieu Uy" and 1LT was "Trung Uy". Among MACV advisors US CPTs were routinely addressed as "Dai Uy" (die-wee). It was considered a title of respect.
