Bury Him: A Memoir of the Viet Nam War
by Captain Doug Chamberlain
Published by Love the West Publications, LLC
Bury Him: A Memoir of the Viet Nam War offers readers a first-person account of what life was really like for Marine infantry units during this formative time of American and Vietnamese history.
Ordered to take command of a company of Marines, Capt. Doug Chamberlain endured many challenges. One challenge was a direct order to bury the remains of a Marine that had been left behind by another unit and be forced to participate in the following cover-up. The order was in direct contraction of United States Marine Corps Policy and the Warrior's Honor Code of never leaving any Marine behind. Following this order meant committing an act of incomprehensible betrayal and dishonor.
In this captivating new book, Capt. Chamberlain explains in detail the events that transpired as he was forced into playing the role of a political pawn in a massive wartime cover-up. Capt. Chamberlain expertly paints a picture of deceit and military malfeasance, sharing with the reader the moral and mental struggles that ate away at him in the decades that followed this horrible act.

"A combat veteran’s astute look at the Vietnam War, both captivating and emotionally forthcoming."
— Kirkus Reviews
"...I was fully absorbed by the story as I imagined the joy of reaching home by radio, the fear of the soldiers as they dodged bullets and bombs, the thrill of flying aircraft, and other clearly described scenes. This powerful memoir will remain fresh in my mind for a good while, and the lessons are worth remembering for a lifetime. Don't miss it!"

Doug Chamberlain, the grandson of homesteaders in eastern Wyoming and western Nebraska, grew up with the "country values" instilled in him in the rural environment of a very small community. Even though there were only 10 students in his high school graduating class, several of his classmates pursued careers, public service, and military service that took them to various locations around the world. His rural values and the foundational reinforcement of those values at the University of Wyoming and John Brown University proved to be tested in their entirety when he became a Marine Infantry Officer in the Viet Nam War. His life changing experiences in that war proved to haunt him during his search to solve a mystery that spanned 50 years...and Bury Him details the sordid facts and the horrible truth that had eluded him.
