Former Marine Vietnam veterean, retired law enforcement captain from Tampa, FL. Retired and living in Dehlonega, GA. My book: And My Mother Danced with Chesty Puller. Marine Vietnam Combat as a Helicopter Aerial Gunner.


Background Information

 

Bruce Hoffman spent four years in the United States Marine Corps.  Two of those years were spent in Vietnam and Okinawa.  And My Mother Danced with Chesty Puller is the story of a young Marine's adventures during the Vietnam War, sometimes humorous, sometimes hair-raising.  The story begins with a young man drawn into the Marine Corps to become an Embassy Marine but he ends up stuck with an office job instead.  He struggles to get into the fight in Vietnam, only to be stationed in South Carolina and is offered a part-time job with a bootlegger to ride shotgun.

When he finally arrives in Vietman he discovers that he isn't supposed to be there, but in Okinawa instead, which turns out to be the land of booze and brothels.  He was able to find a few girlfriends along the way, not only in South Carolina and Okinawa, but in Sigapore, Taiwan, and Vietnam.  Marines weren't all in combat; many were "in the rear with the beer."  After volunteering three times for Vietnam he was able to transfer to Marine Corps Helicopter Squadron VMO-2, and fly as an Aerial Gunner in a UH-1E Huey Helicopters.  Finally, he became a Marine in combat.
