About my libraryFebruary 2011--I recently donated about 700 of my books on the Vietnam War to the Blackfeet Community College in Browning, MT, but I'm still going to keep them listed here.

The Tribal Colleges have a real challenge in meeting the needs of a greatly-underserved population.

January 2013--I just donated my books on American Indians to the College of the Muscogee Nation in Okmulgee, OK. Check with them if you're interested in any of the titles I have listed here. CMN is one of the newer Tribal Colleges. [Actually, I'm keeping the books on Crazy Horse and the Battle of the Little Bighorn for awhile.]

Gary,
If you want to send me the info, that would be great. I have other duplicates other than Vietnam.

Thanks
Lamson
I suspect we are unique among LTers in having even a remote interest in the Vietnam War.
Hi Gary
FYI I just uploaded a cover image for the book below

Don't Tread on my Tire Rubber Sandals: A Tale of Vietnam by David L Beatty
You have an incredible number of books on China. I have enjoyed spending time looking at your collection. Andrew

Hi Gary,
Here are some links to CIA documents relative to the Vietnam War. It looks like some of the items were just declassified earlier this year.

Gary, I highly recommend A Sense of Duty: My Father, My American Journey, by Quang X Pham. Because you're interested in Vietnam. I read it a couple years ago and found it fascinating. Lent it to my parish priest, who really related as he made it out of country about the same time Pham did and went thru the same camps, etc. Have a great holiday wknd. - Tim
Hi, Gary - I lived Odenton for 21 yrs back when I was still working. Retired now and writing my memoirs. My own Vietnam era/Cold War memoir is SOLDIER BOY. Info at RatholeBooks.com or Amazon. Write me, okay? - Tim
OUTSTANDING resource! Thanks
I hope we are not the last, but you are probably correct. People do not seem interested in commiting the time to books. Why read 200 pages when you can Google?!
Ah, I can see that the National Agriculture library probably doesn't have a huge collection of CJK materials, alas.
