I'm a Marine Corps Brat...so I had to read it. My Dad was a POW in WWII. It wasn't so much about the war as about two brothers...one who served, one who stayed home to help the elderly parents on their avocado farm in Fallbrook, CA. Which is located at the rear entrance to Camp Pendleton, CA. Several friends live there and my father was constantly in and out of the hospital there in Pendleton due to residual bouts of Malaria.
