When I Turned Nineteen: A Vietnam War Memoir

By Glyn Haynie

Biography & memoir, General non-fiction | Paperback, Hardback, eBook, Audiobook


It’s the year 1969. I was serving in the U.S. Army with my brothers of First Platoon Company A 3rd Battalion/1st Infantry Regiment 11th Brigade Americal (23rd Infantry) Division. We were average American sons, fathers, husbands, or brothers who’d enlisted or been drafted from all over the United States and who’d all come from different backgrounds. We came together and formed a brotherhood that will last through time. I share my experiences about weeks of boredom and minutes to hours of terror and surviving the heat, carrying a 60-pound rucksack, monsoons, a forest fire, a typhoon, building a firebase, fear, death and fighting the enemy while mentally, physically, and morally exhausted.



From the age of 18 until he retired in March of 1989, Glyn Haynie served his country as a member of the U.S. Army. Starting in 1968, his military career spanned 20 years. At the age of 19, Haynie found himself fighting in the jungles of Vietnam with the 23rd Infantry Division. Before retiring, Haynie served as a squad leader, platoon sergeant, drill instructor, a first sergeant, and finally as an instructor for the U.S. Army Sergeants Major Academy (USASMA).
