Introductory Profile: About Don Bos

The person I interviewed Mr.Boss I meet him when I first moved to San Marcos. He is my neighbor and friend he served as a technician in the Vietnam war a war between the U.S and north Vietnam. The Vietnam War is the commonly used name for the Second Indochina War, 1954–1973. Usually, it refers to the period when the United States and other members of the SEATO (Southeast Asia Treaty Organization) joined the forces of the Republic of South Vietnam in contesting communist forces comprised of South Vietnamese guerrillas and regular-force units, generally known as Viet Cong (VC), and the North Vietnamese Army (NVA). The U.S. had the largest foreign military presence and basically directed the war from 1965 to 1968. For this reason, in Vietnam today it is known as the American War. It was a direct result of the First Indochina War (1946–1954) between France, which claimed Vietnam as a colony, and the communist forces then known as Viet Minh. In 1973 a “third” Vietnam war began—a continuation, actually—between North and South Vietnam but without significant U.S. involvement. It ended with communist victory in April 1975.
Mr.Boss is one of my most trusted friends and has set an example for how I live my life today. He was the one that taught me about the art of war and conflict. Without him I would not be the person I am today.He lived on a air base and saw combat several times. The most famous was a Viet Cong missile attack on his base.
This Interview will cover where and how he was trained. His experiences during the war. He will give his own personal accounts of the war itself.
