Cheers and Tears the memoirs of Lieutenant General Charles G. Cooper U.S. Marine Corps (Retired), details one man's amazing rise in the armed forces, a man who witnessed the genesis of the Vietnam War from where it started.Iaden with packs and weapons, Marines of the Eighth Replacement Draft picked their way carefully down the aft gangway and slowly boarded the waiting mud- coated green Marine Corps tractortrailer rigs. The trailers had wooden benches inside, and their sides, from about midheight upward, were covered with wooden slats that were separated to let the air flow ... The saving graces were the duckboard sidewalks between the tents and the wooden flooring of the tents themselves.
