Small Press BookCampbell, John
They Were Our Ours: Gloucester County's (NJ) Loss in Vietnam
[author's website]

"John Campbell has just completed his most important Vietnam mission: with a relentless persistence and passionate dedication he found the families and friends of every soldier who was lost from Gloucester County and let them remember the soldiers they loved the most. THEY WERE OURS will bring a tear to the eye and a lump to the throat. But you won't put this book down without feeling proud, enriched, and awed." -Laura Palmer, author Shrapnel in the Heart

Cammermeyer, Margarethe with Chris Fisher. 
Serving in Silence

This interesting memoir is about a woman who had a stellar career as a nurse in the military until it came out she was gay.  She then fought the attempts to have her discharged.  One chapter deals with her time in Vietnam. Made into a TV movie with Glenn Close and Judy Davis.  

Did you experience discrimination in the military because of sexual orientation?  Col. Cammermeyer is researching a new book; "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."

Chong, Denise
The Girl in the Picture : The Story of Kim Phuc Whose Image Altered the Course of the Vietnam War 

An Amazon review: "The photo of Kim Phuc running in terror from a napalm attack is one of the best-known images of the Vietnam War. This book looks behind the photo to tell the story of an ordinary peasant thrust into the spotlight and how her life was forever changed by the click of a camera. It reveals how Kim Phuc was used as a propoganda tool by the Vietnamese and how she escaped to a new life in Canada. And it offers fascinating insights into how journalists covered the war how that one photo also changed the life of the photographer who took it."

This book also covers the story of the soldier who apologized to Ms. Phuc in DC a few years ago.
