This book is written to honor those men who so gallantly fought during the 77 day siege of Khe Sanh that started in January 1968. Where 5000 Marines and 1000 South Vietnamese Army Regulars stood fast and held their ground at President Johnson’s request. We give special tribute to the men from Bravo company 1st platoon 1/26 Marines who assaulted the trench in front of our perimeter and nobody came back alive. Our lieutenant (FO) forward observer and his radio operator didn’t make it out alive either. I also want to give special tribute to the 42 Marines who’s C - 123 that was shot down coming back to Khe Sanh and crashed on the side of a nearby hill. We had 3 men coming back to A Btry 1/13 on that plane. Two were coming back from previous wounds and one was coming back from R&R. their names were Larry Kennedy, George Elliott III and the third I could no longer remember his name. To my younger brothers who is also a Vietnam Marine Veteran Gilbert Ramirez. To the Marines from A Btry 1/13 who stood fast and hand artillery duels with a very aggressive enemy. They say that there was thirty to forty thousand North Vietnamese all around us. How can I forget my neighbor Tony Zavala who grew up with me and we ended up on Hill 10 together after we were ordered to abandon Khe Sanh. I believe everyone who fought during the siege of Khe Sanh should get a Bronze Star because they were all hero’s; could some congressperson make that happen; during an upcoming Veterans day ceremony.

Comic and television star Tim Conway (The Carol Burnett Show, McHale's Navy, Dorf) enjoyed enormous popular appeal. In this humorous, loving, and surprising memoir, Tim's eldest of his six children, Kelly, reveals that the Conway home life was as riotous as some of her father's legendary comedy sketches. Kelly Conway allows readers an intimate look at an American childhood set in 1970s and 80s Los Angeles, from the studios of CBS to the racetrack of Santa Anita Park where her father taught his kids the art of horse betting. Tim Conway took his hilarious creativity off the set to the family home, where he acted as the ringmaster to six unruly lion cubs—and often lit the fuse of their short-tempered mother, Mary Anne. Kelly takes us through the fascinating world of entertainment from the lens of her dad’s television stardom to her own career in costume design and wardrobe styling, using the lessons her father taught her about holding her own in the often cruel world of show business. But it’s not until Kelly realizes that she must find the courage to fight for her dad when he faces a devastating life change that her steadfast commitment to him becomes clear—although it will mean losing lifelong relationships, and at times, facing harsh criticism. My Dad's Funnier Than Your Dad is Kelly’s love letter to her father, an account of the warm, laugh-filled world of her childhood. And when life brings sadness instead of smiles, it’s the mutual respect and fierce devotion that Kelly shares with her famous father which ultimately defines the true meaning of love.

'I am the Guv'nor's daughter - but what does that mean?' Lenny McLean, better known as The Guv'nor, was a legendary and sometimes terrifying figure: a bare-knuckle fighter, bouncer and, in later life, an actor. He was a formidable force in the East End and across London, but behind his towering demeanour was a loving father who provided a safe haven for his children. For his only daughter, Kelly, his status brought with it a reputation both to live up to, and sometimes escape. Kelly experienced the old East End way of life, often lived just outside the law, first-hand and equally the uncertainty that came with her father's mood swings and the 'black dog' that followed him around, despite their close bond. The connection between father and daughter became even more apparent as Kelly began to battle her own mental health issues that, as a mum to two young children, would threaten to destroy her life. In this incredibly frank and poignant memoir, Kelly McLean provides a unique insight into life growing up as the daughter of one of the last old-school fighters, featuring many previously untold stories. This is the story of East End life from a woman who has seen it, lived it, and sometimes been plagued by it.
