I dedicate this book to all the men and women who served during the Vietnam War and especially to the memory of my fellow linguists (aka Monterey Mary’s) in the Army Security Agency whose excellent service, sacrifice, and great contribution, for the most part, went unnoticed.

I’ve taken the liberty to add Appendix A: Special Orders. This appendix has selected special orders I received from 1965 through 1969. I decided to include “copies” of these orders to honor the memory and service of the soldiers whose names appeared on them and for historical reasons.

In many cases, I didn’t know them, so obviously at the time of this writing, it was impossible for me to acquire permission, so I didn’t include any service numbers, contact or personal information for security reasons.
