Summary The "hair-raising details of the second-by-second events" of a Special Forces medic's covert operations during the Vietnam War (On Point: The Journal of Army History Online). In the years since the Vietnam War, the elite unit known as the Studies and Observations Group (SOG) has spawned many myths, legends, and war stories. Special Forces medic Joe Parnar served with SOG during 1968 in FOB2/CCC near the tri-border region that gave them access to the forbidden areas of Laos and Cambodia. Parnar recounts his time with the recon men of this highly classified unit, as his job involved a unique combination of soldiering and lifesaving. His stories capture the extraordinary commitment made by all the men of SOG and reveal the special dedication of the medics, who put their own lives at risk to save the lives of their teammates. Parnar also discusses his medical training with the Special Forces. "A well-written, interesting account of Parnar's three-year term of enlistment in the US Army, culminating as a Special Forces medic in Vietnam from 1968 to 1969 . . Parnar takes the time to provide context, circumstance and motivation for heroism and tragedy -- for US soldiers and the indigenous Vietnamese soldiers and civilians with whom he worked . . The service, sacrifice and valor of a generation are vividly documented in the pages of SOG Medic." -- ARMY Magazine.
