Stay Mine Forever....Letters From Nam: The Story of Tony and Clellie Jolley (Paperback)
War robbed them of so much but it could not steal their love.
At a time when America cheered the first man walking on the moon, partied at Woodstock, and touted peace and free love, many men lost their lives in the most misunderstood and highly contested war in history. Stay Mine Forever is the story of Tony Jolley, a 19-year-old young husband and father-to-be, who embarks on the journey of a lifetime when he is drafted into the Vietnam War.
A young Idaho farm boy is transformed into a decorated war veteran. This couple's letters and pictures detailing his many missions and devastating battles lead us through Vietnam and Cambodia and back to the States to his waiting wife expecting their first child.
The Vietnam War changed the futures of men, women, and families. It ravaged hopes and dreams. Without remorse, it robbed children of their fathers, parents of their children, and wives of their husbands. Young couples faced the loss of their partners, homes, and innocence. For Tony and Clellie Jolley, it was no different. Their naivety is stripped away by the harsh reality of war, not just for two years of service, but a lifetime of never being able to forget its effects.
Experience this must-read incredible true story of an Army Officer and the love of his life who together withstood the ravages of war.
