About the Author

Larry Hunter began his military service as an ROTC cadet in 1961 at Florence State College, now the University of North Alabama. Upon graduation, he was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the US Army, then completed Officer Basic Course at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. During his assignment at Fort Benning, Georgia, he received orders for First Air Cavalry Division, First Battalion, Twenty-First Artillery as a forward observer. Following a year's service in Vietnam, he was an instructor for two years at the US Army Artillery and Missile School at Fort Sill before returning to civilian life. He is retired after thirty years in management in the manufactured housing industry. Stories of his battles in Vietnam have been presented over the years by request from civic clubs, Veterans Day programs, the American Legion, schools and churches. Fire Mission! Fire Mission! is his first published work.


"An inherently riveting read from beginning to end, "Fire Mission! Fire Mission!: A Forward Observer's Experiences in Vietnam" will prove to be a welcome and impressively informative addition to the growing body of Vietnam War literature, histories, and memoirs. While unreservedly recommended for both community and academic library 20th Century American Military History collections in general, and Vietnam War supplemental studies lists in particular, it should be noted for the personal reading lists of students, academia, military history buffs, and non-specialist general readers with an interest in the subject that "Fire Mission! Fire Mission!" is also available in a paperback edition."
