After the sudden death of his father, young Mark Vergara, the oldest son of immigrant parents, was thrust into the role of principal breadwinner, working hard in the beet fields of Colorado to support his family. After joining the Army Air Corps and flying dozens of combat missions, he bore the physical and emotional scars of his time in the service, yet he was satisfied he had fulfilled his father's final wish that he do right by his family.
From World War II to the Vietnam War, this tale of a military man who was also a devoted family man is based on the author's own experiences as a proud son of immigrant parents, a distinguished soldier, a loving husband and father, and a loyal friend.
