Book Description: Air Force Sergeant Sandy Coker is the youngest son of wealthy industrialists Carl and Marion Coker. An independent and wealthy young man, Coker enlists in the Air Force rather than joining his parents’ business. Deciding that the military is the career path he wants to follow, he excels in the field of civil engineering. During the war years of the sixties, Coker falls in love with Gabrielle Luntz, but their plans for marriage are put on hold when Coker is shipped to Vietnam to join a special Air Force Squadron: Red Horse. These elite squadrons are engaged in construction of airfield components under combat conditions and Coker finds himself immersed in a conflict he cannot rationalize. On the eve of his wedding, planned to take place during his leave in Honolulu, Coker and his closest friend disappear while on a routine work assignment in the jungles of Da Nang.
