When the 160 men of Charlie Company (4th Battalion/47th Infantry Regiment/9th Infantry Division) were drafted by the US Army in May 1966, they were part of the wave of conscription that would swell the American military to eighty thousand combat troops in Vietnam by the height of the war in 1968. In the spring of 1966 the war was still popular, and the draftees of Charlie Company saw their service as a rite of passage. But by December 1967, when the company returned home, only thirty men were not casualties—and they were among the first veterans of the war to be spit on and harassed by war protesters as they arrived back home.
