THEY WERE SOLDIERS profiles the lives of some of the men and women who served in the Vietnam War and their paths after the war had ended, including many who made outstanding contributions in fields like business, science, and others, despite the hate and neglect that faced them when they returned home. Galloway and Wolf have created a magnificent tribute that finally gives respect and notice to the soldiers that make up an oft-forgotten generation of Americans.
