Following in his father’s footsteps, Elmo Zumwalt III, graduated from college with a commission and volunteered himself for one of the most dangerous assignments in Vietnam; swift boat commander. Ten years after returning home he discovered that he, like many other veterans, had developed cancer as a result of exposure to agent orange. The tragic irony of his illness, that his own father had given the order to use agent orange, offers an unusually complex and poignant portrait of a family effected by the tragedy in Southeast Asia.
