John Bowen documents the physical and emotional trials of his Vietnam experience, and his readjustment to civilian life. The story is beautifully supplemented by his original drawings. Bowen was stationed at Tan Son Nhut Air Base outside of Saigon in 1968. Being the only illustrator in the 834th Air Division Headquarters Unit, he had to quickly acclimate himself and get to work supporting the division - graphically. One of the jobs assigned to him was documenting the Airlift resupply by drawing and painting the actual operations on site, in action. He sketched in the field and on the Tan Son Nhut flight line. Join him for a different view of Vietnam - that of an Air Force Illustrator.
