I Volunteered: Canadian Vietnam Vets Remember

Front Cover
Watson & Dwyer, 1996 - Biography & Autobiography - 175 pages

Everyone knows that Canada sheltered over 30,000 Americans escaping the draft, but not many are aware that for every draft dodger, a Canadian illegally volunteered to fight for the U.S. armed forces in Vietnam. Canadians turned a blind eye to them. Both the Canadian government and the average Canadian chose not to admit that we had any part in America's dirty war. The Canadian volunteers were the invisible army. Those who returned were shunned or forgotten. I Volunteered is their story.
