In June 1964, David J. McCallum graduated from St. James Catholic High School and wasted no time enlisting as a paratrooper in the U.S. Army, eagerly leaving behind him the battlegrounds of home. Eighteen months later, he was deployed as an infantry medic to serve with the 1st Battalion 8th Cavalry (1st Cavalry Division) in the Central Highlands of Vietnam where he would face battles of a different kind. With extraordinary detail, humility, and humor, David shares in this blog his Visions of Vietnam, revealing to readers his formerly unseen wounds, his unmistakable resilience, and his allegiance to those with whom he served.
