Twin Marines in Hell: From Grade School to Vietnam


There are thousands of books written about Vietnam, but not necessarily about twins in Marine Corps boot camp and Vietnam at the same time. This book is history, but it is not a history book. It is a story as I remembered Vietnam and the hardship of being a grunt in the Marine Corps. The story highlights growing up as twins in New York City and joining the Marines together. My brother John's life was taken away at an early age of 58 years old. He died from Agent orange—a toxic chemical produced by greedy corporations and sprayed in Vietnam. Many Americans were exposed to this chemical while fighting in Vietnam and are still dying from cancer from it today.
