The Journal of Patrick Seamus Flaherty: A United States Marine Corps, Khe Sanh,Vietnam ,1968 (My Name is America)by Ellen Emerson White
"This journal is based upon actual events, but all names and certain unit and operational details have been changed, in order to protect the privacy of the Marines who actually served so bravely at Khe Sanh. Although every attempt has been made to present the story as accurately as possible, based upon public records, any resemblance to actual people (other than public figures such as President Johnson) is very much a coincidence. When recounting the actions taken by certain soldiers, students of the Vietnam War may recognize the people they represent. As a result, no identifying details whatsoever are given, when these particular incidents are recounted, based upon after-action reports and other sources. All Americans owe a great debt of thanks to the veterans of the Vietnam War -- and every other war. Includes a history of Vietnam, war timeline, glossary, and related military information." This is the companion book to Where have all the flowers gone? : the diary of Molly MacKenzie Flaherty (Dear America), already on bookshare. patrick has volunteered to go to Vietnam. This is his story. This is part of the My name is America Series.
May 6, 1889<P>At Iolani Palace, Father and I met with Papa Moi and Mama Moi in the throne room. Papa Moi was solemn as he reminded me that it will be my responsibility to do as well as possible, and in that way, further the hopes of our nation. I was glad that I have never admitted to him how fearful I am about leaving. I think he would find that petty, as I go off not for myself, but for all of the Hawaiians I will someday lead.<P>"I will not fail, Papa, will I?" I asked Father, once we were in our carriage and on the way back to Ainahau.<P>"It is not even a possibility", he said, his voice full of confidence.<P" wish that I could feel that same confidence.
