Veteran's Day. By Rod Kane. Rod Kane's memoir of the Vietnam War and its aftermath takes the reader on a journey through the inferno of combat and the purgatory of one veteran's redemption, without finally reaching Dante's earthly paradise. The author found himself in the dark wood, first in the napalmed forests and then in the tangled underbrush of his own mind. He could not shake the war and its memory for half of his young life until a series of events - including writing down the midnight thoughts that are at the heart of this book.
Recounts the story of a young combat medic in Vietnam and his never-ending battle with the memories and nightmares the war left him.

Although Kane hearkens back to his uncle repeatedly, the sense of hero worship is never clearly conveyed-Kane simply reiterates that the man smoked Hit Parades. The book continues with his problems adjusting to the real world over the years: his problems with relationships, drugs, alcohol, suicide, violence. He attends group therapy sessions in an attempt to retrieve himself from the brink of destruction.
