HOMECOMING: When the Soldiers Returned from Vietnam.
Edition: First printing.
New York: Putnam, (1989) dj. Hardcover first edition - Excerpts from over 200 letters (selected from over 1000 replies) when columnist Bob Greene asked "Were you ever spat upon when you returned home to the United States?" Many recount painful experiences confirming that yes, they were spat upon, but other letters describe acts of generosity toward servicemen, from the typical free beers at the bar to a free show. These letters "bring back the incidents of 20 years ago vividly, but not always with bitterness. And they reveal healing solidarity among veterans in response to what for many was not a happy homecoming." (Library Journal) 269 pp. ISBN: 0-399133860.
