Description - A #NLD A Pogo's Perspective by Greg Smith

Greg Smith served as the Orderly Room Corporal in A Sqn 3 Cav Regt in Vietnam 1970/71. He has written a book of his experiences and how it affected him. He enlightens the reader how all who served, including Pogos, were affected simply in varying degrees. He speaks of the additional burden of guilt that Pogos experienced by not being able to physically support their mates. He walks the reader through his call-up, training and discipline. He then details his role and experiences as a Pogo, which may be an eye-opener for some. For 35 years he worried about acceptance by his mates because of his different role. This was all swept away in a heartbeat at the Melbourne reunion. He now wears the Pogo tag with pride. He writes of his lake of support and understanding on his return to hostile Australia. You will share his highs and lows. You will laugh and rekindle the good and not so good times. With absolute honesty, he details his emotional decline and the subsequent recognition/diagnosis of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSO). This book is for all Vietnam veterans, their partners and families. In fact all will benefit from its message and provide better understanding.
