REVIEW: On the Frontlines of the Television War by Yasutsune Hirashiki

REVIEW: On the Frontlines of the Television War by Yasutsune Hirashiki

JayneB REVIEWS / BOOK REVIEWS20th century / Japanese / non-fiction / Photographer / Vietnam / War / Military2 Comments

On The Frontlines of the Television War is the story of Yasutsune “Tony” Hirashiki’s ten years in Vietnam—beginning when he arrived in 1966 as a young freelancer with a 16mm camera but without a job or the slightest grasp of English and ending in the hectic fall of Saigon in 1975 when he was literally thrown on one of the last flights out.

His memoir has all the exciting tales of peril, hardship, and close calls as the best of battle memoirs but it is primarily a story of very real and yet remarkable people: the soldiers who fought, bled, and died, and the reporters and photographers who went right to the frontlines to record their stories and memorialize their sacrifice. The great books about Vietnam journalism have been about print reporters, still photographers, and television correspondents but if this was truly the first “television war,” then it is time to hear the story of the cameramen who shot the pictures and the reporters who wrote the stories that the average American witnessed daily in their living rooms.


“The basic essence of war is death.” – David Snell

ABC News David Snell after Landmine explosion

David Snell (1967) after landmine. Recovered well.

I grew up watching this war and when, in the forward, it’s described as the Television War, I said “yes, that’s it exactly.” Every night my parents had the 6 pm nightly news with Uncle Walter (Cronkite) on. I remember the video footage and the body counts even though I wasn’t even 7 years old. When the last helicopters lifted off the embassy roof, I wasn’t even a teenager but I recall those images vividly, too. I’ve read plenty of memoirs of the war from military sources but until I saw this book, it hadn’t dawned on me that I’d never read any by the journalists who covered it and produced what I saw on the nightly news. Here is the story of a man behind the camera who gives the journalistic experience told from the POV of a SE Asian photographer.

Walking With Intention Day 15 by Gunamayi


The child walks or skips, happily and with joy. With no particular intention, reveling in his own spring of inner joy. Where is this child going? Who will he become? When ignorantly he wanders away from that inner peace and joy and forgets the way he came, how will he try to return? How many paths will he try before he breaths a sigh of relief in returning home?

The Most Important Job

I am an insurance agent.  You are a writer.  She is a physical therapist.  He is a stay-at-home dad.

We have jobs to perform.  We have careers to build.  We have schedules to adhere to and meetings to attend.  We meet deadlines, make appointments, and multitask our way through the days.

We navigate the hustle and bustle of society.  We ride out the ebbs and flows of the economic system.  We create trends, and then we buck them in favor of the next latest, greatest thing.

Some struggle to wade through the mundane hours of their workday.  Others strive to climb the ladder and achieve new heights of career elevation.  The luckiest of us grab ahold of that thing that sparks our passion and find a way to make both a living and a life with it.

I am, I am, I am




He was the bullman earlier
King of the dish, my lucky animal.
Breathing was easy in his airy holding.
The sun sat in his armpit.
Nothing went moldy. The little invisibles
Waited on him hand and foot.
The blue sisters sent me to another school.
Monkey lived under the dunce cap.
He kept blowing me kisses.
I hardly knew him.

He Means It

“Please just step away! He means it!” It was my plea for his own safety.

Let me explain. Years ago, we had this dog that we still talk about. Brock. Brock was an 85lb boxer that was nothing but muscle and strength. He was a card carrying boxer dog, but he was the biggest and meanest boxer I’ve ever seen. He had problems. I’m serious. Real problems. From the day we got him, he was family. We loved Brock. And he was perfect. The most loving, caring, sweet, obedient, behaved dog ever …TO US. To everyone else, he thought you were there to kill his family, and he was going to defend his pack. Then something happened, his pack grew. We had Madison. And Brock got WORSE. I’ve never seen anything like it. Brock adored that little girl. From an infant, we made him keep his distance. He would stand guard and never ever take his eyes off her. And then she grew and discovered “Bock.” Madison loved her Bock. He would let her do anything…and she did. We have the cutest pictures of her resting on him drinking her sippy cup, playing vet and checking his heartbeat, and bossing that huge dog around… And he obeyed. But when we added Madison to our pack, he grew ever more protective. I really did worry that he would hurt someone. He especially hated men. And on this day, I was standing in our front yard with Brock on a leash as our neighbor was walking into our yard. It was all I could do to hold Brock back. The neighbor tried to look unworried, “It’s ok. I’m a dog person.”

I of July

Instead of leaving these draft compositions
to stack up ’til they’ve turned into paper composts,
I decided I’d gather the heaps
and see what they reap –
On The Heath.

Thank you for visiting,


I truly appreciate all your comments and feedback and sincerely apologise for late replies or a complete lack thereof. I hope to improve on this and engage more.

A hopeless romantic, I spend most of my time reading, daydreaming and finding beauty in the nooks and crannies of city life. Being an armchair traveler (Read: Crazy BookWorm) I also carry an  all-consuming Wanderlust in my heart that is yet to be realized. But for now, I live, love and write in Mumbai, the city where dreams come true. Writing is the ‘back story’ in my psychologist-by-day life but this blog is my wish and hope to turn that around.


Invisible Monsters REMIX

I think I am in an ongoing dark mode, because after the dank and dark movie ugly, I am writing about the twisted and dark book Invisible Monsters REMIX by Chuck Palahnuik.

This book is crafted to read like a fashion magazine. Pieces and pieces of non-linear material that at some angles comes together and makes absolute sense and at other times just looks like a collective heaving mass of twisted chaos.

That is Chuck Palahnuik for you (Thank you M for introducing me to him. You are truly my dark soul sister :* )

The book begins with the nameless protagonist, a supermodel with the perfect life, a career, a fiance and a loyal best friend, till she loses her entire jaw in an accident and so begins this satire on beauty and society peppered with the evil.

Let me not write a spoiler-filled review but let me tell you this, the characters change names throughout the book and as you claw your way deeper and deeper into the mess trying to make sense of the story and its characters all you will find is a recurrent theme of a need for destruction. A need so deep-rooted and rampant, it truly has no boundaries.

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” – Hippocrates

Welcome to A Seed Planted Mobile Herb Shop!  To begin we want to make it known that A Seed Planted is more than just an Herb Shop. We are not just here to sell herbal products. Our goal is to help you become a healthier you. So our emphasis is on education. As Certified Nutritional Consultants we are here to be your health coaches. We are here to be your health mentors.

At A Seed Planted Mobile Herb Shop we understand the importance of education and support in helping you to reach your health goals. In a study conducted by Brown Medical School they found that adults who received email support from a mentor were more successful in losing weight and reaching their health goals than those who received no support. A study presented at the North American Association for the Study of Obesity found that women who regularly met with a mentor were more likely to keep weight off. Lastly, the US Preventative Services Task Force is advising that all people who are trying to lose weight should get counseling and nutritional education.

Abigail Hester’s interest in health and wellness started at a young age. After losing her father while in her teens, she started with the question, why do we get sick? Her next question was how do we prevent illness. After watching her father suffer so much at the hands of the medical profession she started to ask is there a better way? The answer she found was yes, there is a better way. In the last 20 years Abigail’s studies have covered a broad range of related topics. Listed below are a number of training and certifications she has received.

Happy Anniversary to TV’s First Inter-Racial Kiss

“On this day, November 22, 1968, television’s first inter-racial kiss appeared on Star Trekand opened the door to racial equality for generations.

In the Star Trek episode “Plato’s Stepchildren” the crew is forced to do the bidding of “gods” who force Captain Kirk (William Shatner) and Uhura (Nichelle Nichols) to kiss.

One critic said, “The underlying message was, ‘If I have to kiss you to save my ship and crew, by God, I’ll do it.’”

The moment was so ground-breaking the studio shot two versions of the scene: One with them kissing and one without in case they changed their mind.

In her autobiography, Beyond Uhura, Star Trek and Other Memories, Nichols says she got a letter from a White Southerner who said: “I am totally opposed to the mixing of the races. However, any time a red-blooded American boy like Captain Kirk gets a beautiful dame in his arms that looks like Uhura, he ain’t gonna fight it.

Welcome to a new friend: Riley Amos Westbook | A fantasy Author with too much free time on his hands.

JANUARY 15, 2015

The world is made of our perceptions.

Hey, how’s it going? I know some of you out there like my musings, I know others that probably think I’m insane. But I also know that I can’t quit being me.

Let me put this in perspective. I believe we shape our world. How we look, how everyone else sees us, is all based on our perceptions. And the labels that come with that perception shapes us.

Before age four, I was skinny as a rail. You could count my ribs. And then I had my tonsils removed. I can still hear the doctors voice as he said it. “Your son might put on weight after this surgery.” Before I heard those words, you would have looked at me and thought malnourished before obese. And then the weight began to pack on.

At age six, I was told I was fat. Everyone told me so. Students, teachers, other random people. Rather than fight the perspective I embraced it. In so doing my size changed in my perspective.

So, I grew. People came up with jokes to tease me about being fat, I came up with better ones. I used their weapons as a shield and in so doing I made lifestyle choices that made me fat. All my choices, all in how I perceived myself.

Woot! I’ve sold my first two books EVER!

And I haven’t even been able to format them right for the premium catalog!

Now I really feel like an author. To the two people who bought my book, thank you(BTW, could you leave me a review on the first one? Lol)! Sara and I should be posting the last one on smashwords soon, then I need to find some help formatting them correctly for their catalog. Stupid TOC, they won’t accept it into their catalog unless I have one.

Been a pain in the ass editing this last book from my phone. I feel like Missy is sitting on my shoulder, whispering in my one good ear that the book isn’t done, running down to my thumbs and putting them to work on this android keyboard! Now I know why Nord hates fairies, they’re annoying!

And Sara will have her weekly post up tommorrow. We’ve both been fighting the head cold from hell! Anyways, time for the special post, I hope you all enjoy!


I’be always liked mangoes, though with how I grew up, we never had them. It wasn’t until I was 25 that I tried my first ones. Dried and prepackaged, they were a gift from a phillipino coworker. They’d been coated in singer, and were delicious!

Now that I’m making my life changes, I’ve gone back to eating them. And since they’re perfectly sweet already, I buy frozen, no sugar added.

Hey there!

My name is Stephanie Eusebi and I’m a nutritionist and passionate foodie! And admittedly, a bit of a food nerd. I can’t explain how much I LOVE FOOD!

I recently published The Daily Food Journal and I am THRILLED with how many people it’s helped in reaching their health goals, especially weight loss. I created this journal to help individuals become aware of what they’re eating and to help them make the right decisions when it comes to food. The recipes in the back of the book help clients stay on track and prove that healthy eating doesn’t need to be boring and dull. Healthy food can be exciting and delicious!! If you are interested in becoming more “food aware” and want a quality resource to guide you to your goals, you can purchase my book HERE!

As a graduate of the Institute of Holistic Nutrition, I hold a diploma in Nutrition. Following the whole foods lifestyle, I have helped both clients and myself overcome multiple health barriers. Results include: weight loss, better energy, digestive wellness, joint pain relief, and clearer skin. Switching to a whole foods lifestyle can be hard. This site will give you the right recipes and resources to help keep you on track.

The Essence of a Thing

Another construction site pumping out noise and dust.

About Miss Alister

SITES AND AIMS:  Not much noise and dust was pumped out of this construction site in 2010.  The year sure didn’t go down like it looked like it would.  It started with a first online publication in January followed by a second one in February.  Seemed like the beginning of a roll.  But I changed jobs and there was only time to work at staying ahead of the work.  And yet, it’s been the most rewarding year.  So for 2011, I’ll order up some more of that.  And I’ll write stories when I can because it’s thrill.

Happy New Year!

Miss A

A BIT ABOUT ME:  I was raised in the USA, in New England, with dreams of big cities and Dixie, of salt water and beaches.  So I hit the bottom of the Bible Belt and ended up spending the majority of my years there working up a sweat—working menial jobs, working out, working on a college degree, and finally, working a big fat telecom career.  Now I’m back, way high up north, because I need to be close to the border.

“I found myself on the other side of the door and at the top of a precipice.

Now I find myself at the beginning of the story. The destruction is all I can see. The destruction would be the end of the story, but in reality, it’s just the beginning.

Here’s the rest of my story…”

Mark Gardner, September 26, 2014

The Beginnings ProjectHow the story started

The Beginnings Project came about from Mark Gardner’s desire to try his hand at stream of consciousness writing, not with ink on paper as Laurence Sterne did in the 1700’s, but with an old typewriter, as James Joyce and other modernist novelists have done using that narrative mode.

Using an old typewriter can mean everything from simply connecting with a writing device of old—and any number of connotations that may accompany—to attributing mystical properties to it that allow for the release of stories pent up within it.

Yes, Gardner’s got a great voice and style but what if it was the typing of “Beginnings” on an old 1949 Remington Quiet-Riter that made it everything from merely special to something akin to Aladdin’s lamp?

What it is

A collaborative writing project that began fortuitously and is perpetuated haphazardly.

I’m a writer.  You would think I could write one of these “About” pages, but I never know what it is  that I want you to know about me.   Some of you already know me, at least virtually.  Still a proper introduction is in order.

My name is Jeff Markowitz and I’m a mystery writer, author of three books (so far) in the Cassie O’Malley series.  I also have a darkly comic mystery/thriller, Death and White Diamonds scheduled to be released December 15, 2014. For more information, follow the links to MY BOOKS, and to EVENTS AND APPEARANCES.

I blog about ideas and events that may be of interest to other readers and writers.  There will be some blatant self-promotion, but I promise not to overdo it.  There will be occasional visits from my dead Romanian ancestors, from space aliens intent on conquering the world with irradiated jello and perhaps from a certain earless pig.  There may even be Siamese triplets.  We shall see.


Death and White Diamonds(coming from Intrigue Publishing December 15, 2014)


Did you ever have one of those days? You know the kind, when nothing seems to go right?

Richie’s girlfriend suggests a romantic getaway, promising him a week-end he will never forget. So why can’t he remember what happened, when he finds her lifeless body on the beach? Richie is fairly certain he didn’t kill his girlfriend, but his memory is hazy. One thing, however, is clear. When Lorraine’s body is found, he’s going to be the prime suspect in a murder investigation.

If her body is found.

Disposing of the body turns out to be harder than Richie could have imagined. Losing it, however, is easy.

Did you ever have one of those days? And we haven’t even gotten to the bad part yet.

Books in the Cassie O’Malley Mystery Series

Who is Killing Doah’s Deer?

When the deer in Doah Township begin dying in large numbers under mysterious circumstances, Cassie is on the story. But when she discovers a dead body among the deer, she is thrust into the middle of a murder investigation. Before the murder can be solved, Cassie must sort fact from fiction as she is confronted with questions of local politics, marital infidelity, Pine Barrens folklore, Siamese triplets, sea monsters, pterodactyls, plesiosaurs and the elusive Jersey Devil, leaving Cassie finally to grapple with the question, Who Is Killing Doah’s Deer?
