Busted : a Vietnam Veteran in Nixon's America, Ehrhart, W. D. ; Franklin, H. Bruce (Foreword by)
1 Ehrhart, W. D. ; Franklin, H. Bruce (Foreword by) Busted : a Vietnam Veteran in Nixon's America
0870239554 / 9780870239557; Between March and September 1974, as Richard Nixon's presidency unraveled on national television, Bill Ehrhart, a decorated Marine Corps sergeant and antiwar Vietnam veteran, fought to retain his merchant seaman's card after being busted for marijuana. He also had a number of other arrests, and was thrown out of New Jersey by the Maple Shade police. All occurred while the House Judiciary Committee conducted hearings on Nixon's impeachment. Busted shows an acute awareness of the ironies of these juxtapositions, as Ehrhart recounts a surreal cross-country journey in search of justice in a nation that has lost it's way, betrayed by its leaders. This is the third book of a series. The first two are Vietnam-Perkasie and Passing Time. Bound in black cloth.
