"Having now had an opportunity to look through the book in greater detail I want to commend you on an outstanding product that resonates very well with us Vietnam vets."

Instructor, Virginia Military Institute


"Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness in sending in your new book, Vietnam Mailbag. Quite clearly it has been a labor of love...Our Vietnam film is slated for a few years down the road, but we're certainly honored to include Vietnam Mailbag in the resources we'll be collecting between now and when we begin our research."

Ken Burns


"[The book] is just beautiful. I flipped through it just now and Sen. Carper walked through my office door just as I was closing it. We looked through it a little bit and are SO impressed. Incredible work - you should be so proud! He took it into his office and - I am confident - will find a home for it where it can be shared with others."

Emily W. Cunningham
DE Press Secretary
U.S. Senator Tom Carper (D-Del.)


“As much as we might think we ‘know’ the Vietnam War, we discover in a book like Nancy Lynch's Vietnam Mailbag that the full story is infinitely more powerful and compelling than we could have possibly imagined. In 1968 Nancy did an extraordinary thing in reaching out to young troops serving in Southeast Asia and bringing their distinct voices to life. And now, forty years later, she honors them again by reminding a new generation of Americans how much our troops sacrificed for this country. Vietnam Mailbag is a timeless, breathtaking tribute to them, and it is a gift to us all.”

— Andrew Carroll, editor of the New York Times bestsellers War Letters
and Behind the Lines


“Nancy Lynch has done a marvelous service to all our Vietnam Veterans and America in her compilation of letters from Delaware servicemen serving in South Vietnam from 1968 to 1972. The letters in Vietnam Mailbag reflect everybody's views — the good, the bad and the ugly — and give the reader an accurate understanding of how our troops felt about the war. After four tours under three different presidents in ’63-64, ’67, ’68 and '69, I too have my views, and it was fascinating to hear others. Nancy does an excellent job in tracking a dozen Vietnam veterans and letting them describe how the war was a turning point in their lives — positive for some, negative for others. Thanks, Nancy, for reminding us all of their sacrifices and service to our Nation.”

— Air Force Lt. Gen. (ret.) Thomas G. McInerney, Fox News Senior Military Analyst


“Nancy’s book is a must read for all people — veterans and non-veterans alike. As a veteran I know she has her finger on the pulse of a nation at war. Everything rings true. The honest dialogue and rich details provide an authentic read.

— Tom Daws, President, Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 83, New Castle, Delaware
