Blue-Eyed Boy: A Vietnam Memoir

Just days before his tour of duty in Vietnam was scheduled to end, Marine Lt. Robert Timberg's vehicle struck a Viet Cong land mine. The explosion resulted in third-degree burns to Timberg's face and much of his body. Timberg, who later became a reporter and White House correspondent for The Baltimore Evening Sun and The Sun, recounts his fraught journey toward reclaiming his life in a new memoir, "Blue-Eyed Boy."
