9780615965185: Mekong Mud Dogs: The Story of: SGT. Ed Eaton

1st Place Gold eLit award winner and is a 4 Star Clarion Review book. On a dark night in the Mekong Delta, young platoon sergeant Edgar Eaton's courage and self-sacrifice would mean the difference between life and death for his wounded comrades. This is the story of Ed the sniper.

Ed doesn't plan on serving as a sniper; the small-town Oregon boy hopes to become a combat medic when he enlists at age nineteen. Instead, he finds himself an infantryman in the unique Army / Navy Riverine Force in the Mekong Delta. Quickly rising to the rank of platoon sergeant, Ed becomes one of the first members of the US Army to be specifically trained to be a sniper.

While Ed's actions on the night of April 3, 1969, have been celebrated in magazines, books, and a History Channel presentation, the full story of his combat service has never been told. Ed describes recollecting the events described in Mekong Mud Dogs as one of the toughest tasks he ever faced. Be glad he did. His acts of bravery and fortitude under fire are an inspiration, and a reminder of other courageous acts by his brothers-in-arms, many of whose stories will never be told.

About the Author:

Edgar W. Eaton was raised in small towns in the Pacific Northwest, during what he describes as simpler times. Like many young men, Ed enlisted to serve in the Vietnam War, a decision that changed his life.

After the war, Ed worked in careers as diverse as construction, real estate, gold mining, truck driving, ski Area management, and goldsmithing. He retired to the Oregon coast with his wife.

Ed's decision to tell his story was prompted, in part, by a 2011 History Channel broadcast highlighting his experiences on the night of April 3, 1969. He now speaks to groups on changing one's self for the better, and raises funds for soldiers in overseas combat zones.

More information about Ed is available at his website, www.EdTheSniper.com.

Review:

AUTOBIOGRAPHY & MEMOIR Mekong Mud Dogs: The Story of: SGT. Ed Eaton Ed Eaton Ed W. Eaton 978-0-615-96518-5 Four Stars (out of Five) Eaton captures the danger, emotions, and political landscapes of the Vietnam War in this extraordinary story of heroism. No one exemplified the utter danger and downright dirty work of the Vietnam War more than the combat infantryman. Ed Eaton lived his own remarkable combat role, and in his memoir, Mekong Mud Dogs, he tells it the way it was. Eaton’s attention to detail and the compelling nature of his war story do not disappoint. Admittedly “not a writer by education or employ,” Eaton is nevertheless a natural storyteller, and he pulls no punches in rendering his almost daily brushes with death in the paddies and groves of the Mekong River Delta in the late 1960s, where units of the US Army’s Ninth Infantry Division were placed in different points of contact with Vietcong units. He chronicles his experiences as a radio operator, grenadier, and point man (“human mine detector”), followed by leadership roles in his squad and platoon. “My men,” Eaton writes, “were more important to me than any fucking bullshit rules of politicians.” Eaton tells the story (also documented on the History Channel and the National Rifle Association’s Life of Duty Channel) of his extraordinary heroics on April 3, 1969: After a night raid, Eaton’s chopper was shot down. Severely injured, he fired on advancing VC troops from atop the downed chopper, changing weapons often. He thwarted the attack until backup arrived. Eaton was awarded several Purple Hearts and has also been recommended for the Medal of Honor. – ForeWord Clarion Review
