I Pledge Allegiance (Vietnam, #1) by Chris Lynch

Four best friends. Four ways to serve their country.

Morris, Rudi, Ivan, and Beck are best friends for life. So when one of the teens is drafted into the Vietnam War, the others sign up, too. Although they each serve in a different branch, they are fighting the war together--and they pledge to do all they can to come home together.

Haunted by dreams of violence and death, Morris makes it his personal mission to watch over his friends--and the best place to do that is in the US Navy. Stationed off the coast of Vietnam on the USS Boston, Morris and his fellow sailors provide crucial support to the troops on the ground.

But the Boston itself isnt safe from attack. And as Morris finds his courage and resolve tested like never before, he keeps coming back to a single thought.

He made a pledge. He must keep them safe.

Morris, Rudi, Ivan and Beck have been best friends since fourth grade. They pledged that if one of them got drafted into the war that they would all go. When Rudi who is one year older receives his draft notice, they all sign up to serve in different branches of the military. Morris has long been plagued with nightmares of the Vietnam War and he feels it is his duty to watch over his friends and to make sure they stay alive. Rudy who has never been very smart always feels out of place until he serves in the military and there he finds a place where he can succeed and feel good about himself in a way he has never been able to before. When Morris is pulled from duty on his first ship he is moved to the Brown Water Navy which is stationed on the Mekong Delta.

Thank you! Ivan, Rudi, Beck and Morris have been friends since fourth grade. Now the war in Vietnam looms, and they pledge to not go voluntarily. But when Rudi receives his draft notice, they all sign up, each with a different branch of the military. Morris signs with the Navy, figuring he somehow can watch over his friends and keep them safe from the USS Boston , a heavy guided-missile cruiser. Initiating a new series with this volume, Lynch offers something valuable: a very good war novel for a preteen and middle-school audience, with enough violence to be an honest portrayal of war, but without the sex and rough language that often keep such novels out of the hands of a ready audience.

Four best friends. Four ways to serve their country. Morris, Rudi, Ivan and Beck are like brothers. So when Rudi is drafted into the Vietnam War, the others sign up too. Even though they are each fighting in a different branch, they are fighting the war together, and pledge to each other that they will do all they can to come back home together. Frightened of dreams of their deaths, Morris makes it is his personal duty to protect and bring his friends back home. However, the USS Boston isn't safe either, and soon Morris finds his courage and loyalty being tested as never before, especially when he is then assigned to a river monitor boat in the Mekong Delta.

Already have an account? Log in! No Vietcong ever called me Nigger. It was 40 years ago today that I awoke long before dawn, walked over to school, and boarded the bus that drove us through the early morning hours from Commack, Long Island to Washington, D. And that's fine. They have trained me and conditioned me to do certain things with the very serious gear they have assembled for the purpose and, again, I say that's fine. Sounds a little sad, like my whole designation is just to be some kind of little buddy -- third-class buddy, at that -- to the real grown-up electricians on board.
