Vietnam veteran, Art De Groot is pleased to announce the release of his new book, Bu Ku Kilo. This work outlines the author’s experiences during the Vietnam War.
Bu Ku Kilo provides a projected glimpse into the lives of army vets as they fought and died in a controversial bloody conflict that took the lives of over a million Vietnamese people and 58,000 American soldiers. In the end, America left in disgrace.
Although the soldiers fought valiantly and repelled and destroyed tens of thousands of the Viet Cong (VC) and North Viet Nam Regulars (NVA), in the end our political will crumbled Nixon just got us out. It was a sad coming home for most vets and even now 44 years later the scars are still everywhere.
“Read my story. You will be enlightened at the events that took place. It may help you understand or get over your cross you may still be carrying on your bleeding shoulders. That conflict called Nam,” the author says.
Bu Ku Kilo is available in both print and ebook versions.
