Many troops who came back from Vietnam were wounded horribly. Many lost limbs and even their sight but the worst wounds of all were the ones where the pain never went away, the ones with addiction to drugs. Sarge fought it hard, but it took much more than he had to whip his problem.

In the book "To Waltz with a White Horse" I write about one man's addiction to heroin. He went from an every day Army Sergeant to an addict in just a week. Before he knew what was happening, he was a regular user.
Many good troops in the Vietnam era came home with addictions. The main reason was that they thought they could twist the devil's tail a time or two and get away with it. Most were young men who thought they were invincible. Nothing could hurt them.
We saw these young warriors come home in buses, planes and body bags. Some made it but many would sell their soul for just one more hit.
