Welcome Home is a short story set in Vietnam and told in a foxhole between a new lieutenant and a hardened Sergeant. Hard to believe such a complete story is told in only 13 pages. Jack Frost is a soldiers' soldier - completing every training class offered to stall from going to Vietnam as an infantry boot. He graduates at the top of his training classes but faces a moral dilemma when finally arriving in Vietnam and facing the enemy. The sergeant also has a secret that he seeks absolution for in telling this tale.

Great read - especially when free! I'm looking forward to reading other offerings by Piers Platt.
