"You've never lived until you've almost died;
for those that have fought for it, life has a meaning the sheltered will never know."

A very personal story of Stan Corvin's often perilous times in the U.S. Army as a two-tour combat helicopter pilot in Vietnam. It's a true-life story of soldiers and pilots who fought for freedom and often their very lives.

Vietnam Saga is also a story about the meaning of life. Standing back from his war experience, Stan reflects on his ever-present faith and how it carried him through this challenging period of his life.

Originally written as a legacy to Stan Corvin's family - something that will be passed down for many generations - Vietnam Saga is now an opportunity for you to share in this legacy and the personal recollections, memories, thoughts, fears and shed tears of a decorated and dedicated American soldier and pilot.
