Summary Favorite sons in small-town Kentucky join the National Guard in order to avoid being sent to combat in Vietnam. They are sent anyway, and are part of the casualties who are delivered back to their hometown along with POW Lieutenant Harlan O'Brien. But the overwhelming grief, even as one hero is being celebrated, cripples the town's faith and gives more impact to the way war divides and alienates a society.
