About the Author:
Dominic Fino served one tour of duty in Vietnam before returning to the States, where he was stationed at Ft. Hood, Texas, a transition he found extremely difficult. As a result, he returned to Vietnam for a second tour. He decided to publish this story after helping coordinate the first Falcon reunion in 1993, the first time the group had been together since leaving Vietnam, in an attempt to help others understand better what vietnam was like for a gunship platoon. Dominic is currently living near his hometown of Baltimore, Maryland.
