Author Dale Kueter has written a moving book about the small town life and tragic death in Viet Nam of Charles Gradoville. The name of the book is Vietnam Sons.
Below is an excerpt from the book. Please take the time to read this heart-felt account of a wonderful young man, taken in the prime of life.
I just read Vietnam Sons by Dale Kueter. No "thank you" will ever be big enough to say to you, Charles, and ALL of the vets from Vietnam. God bless you and your family. And a special thanks to Kenn ... for telling your story to those of us too young to remember the war and your sacrifices. Be at peace.
