Liberty Hill's Vietnam Fighting Men is an interesting chronicle of eight African Americans who were killed in Vietnam. It also features four selected veterans with each giving an oral history of varying perspectives of the war, ranging from "I never felt I would get killed" to "I killed many." The Liberty Hill community sent the unbelievable number of sixty-four of its residents to Southeast Asia to fight in Vietnam. The reader will find Liberty Hill's Vietnam Fighting Men to be a remarkable narrative of the contribution of Liberty Hill to the United States Armed Forces, specifically, and to the nation, generally, during the Vietnam War.About the Author:

Darby taught for 23 years at Burke High and Morningside Middle schools in Charleston County and six years as an adjunct professor at Charleston Southern University, Charleston, South Carolina, where he taught African-American and United States history. At the aforementioned college, he developed and taught the first course solely on the life and legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. According to the Atlanta University History Department, it was the first course of its kind taught within the nation. He presently works as an assistant principal at Fort Dorchester High School, Dorchester County, and serves as a member of Charleston County Council.

About the Editor Drawn by its history and historic ambience, Warwick Jones retired to Charleston 11 years ago after a long career in the securities industry. Although born and raised in Australia, most of his career was spent abroad. He worked as an equity analyst in Sydney and London and managed equity research departments in both Tokyo and New York. Disturbed by the poor media coverage of Charleston's local government, he founded the website, Charlestonwatch.com, to provide information about activities of the city and county governments and to encourage scrutiny of their activities. As well as covering City and County council meetings, he finds time to read and has a strong interest in history and music. He also raises orchids and is a talented classical pianist. Jones also serves on Charleston County Greenbelt Advisory Board and Charleston County Planning Commission Board. He is married and has two children.
