"I WISH TO HAVE NO CONNECTION
WITH ANY SHIP,
THAT DOES NOT GO FAST,
FOR I INTEND TO GO IN HARM'S WAY "

John Paul Jones,Capt. Continental Navy

Rick's Brown Water Navy Reading List

The following is a collection of books I have found which attempt to describe our experience in Vietnam. Most of us who served in the brown water navy have trouble  articulating the experience since it was another world and most people in the "real world" have no frame of reference. Even though in most cases it was only a year it was a large part of most of our lives. I am glad that some have tried to document our experience, before our small part of a small conflict is completely lost to history.
