Ron Kovic's impassioned, timely memoir about the American Veterans Movement picks up where Born on the Fourth of July leaves off. In the spring of 1974, as the last American troops were being pulled out of Vietnam, Kovic and a crew of other severely injured veterans in a California VA hospital launched the American Veterans Movement. In a phenomenal feat of political organizing, Kovic corralled his fellow AVM members into staging a sit-in, and then a hunger strike, in the Los Angeles office of Senator Alan Cranston, demanding better treatment of injured veterans.
