Rate this:
In 1967, the 19-year-old Howard Olsen was looking for a place to belong, something to believe in. The United States Army was looking for him. Searching for answers, he signed up for the draft and was quickly sent to Vietnam.Issues of the Heart is the result of one artilleryman's struggle to rid himself of the nightmares, flashbacks and troubling memories of the Vietnam experience. Olsen has given an accurate, poignant look at the day-to-day lives of many men who lived and some who died while serving in the Vietnam War.His is not a political saga, but the story of one young man's coming of age during a traumatic and harshly inhumane war.It reflects a common vein of experience that all Vietnam combat veterans once shared--and are still sharing.
