5:21   |   When Gene McCandless got to his assignment at Cua Viet, up near the DMZ, he was greeted by a ferocious artillery barrage. He was certain the next one would hit the back of his head as he headed for the bunker. He was just seventeen and had slipped through the cracks to make it into the war zone.
