Kill Me If You Can,You SOB is a Vietnam War book written on location. LZ Betty, Phan Thiet, Vietnam 1968
“There was never a feeling of honor or accomplishments while marching in lockstep with my Uncle Sam. I actually resent “Thank you for your service,” from those who righteously called us baby killers and or now thanking us for killing the babies.”
- Bob Miller
This work is the Vietnam War diary of Chief Warrant Officer Bobby W. Miller, a helicopter pilot serving in the 192nd Assault Helicopter Company (AHC) in Phan Thiet, Vietnam. The 192nd AHC supported the 3rd 506th Infantry Battalion at LZ Betty. Kill Me If You Can, You SOB is a highly controversial Vietnam War military book that's potentially divisive. Is this the best military book to read, greatest Army aviation book, scholary P.T.S.D. book or perfect book for retired military?
It is not.
Lieutenant Colonel Manuel A. Alves ( Blackhawk)
LTC Alves (Blackhawk) doing what he did best--caring for his men. Blackhawk was a good man, an extraordinary soldier.
"Honestly, I could have been in the middle of a damn heart attack and he'd expect me to rush out to medivac one of his troopers with a toothache. LTC Alves, my friend and hero." - Bob Miller
"During the period that Lieutenant Colonel Manuel A. Alves, a hawk-nosed infantry officer from California, commanded the 3-506th Inf. Battalion there was little doubt in anyone's mind as to who was in charge." -- Analysis 1971 Dr. James E. Gates

"Arann and Thoman were tent mates of mine, and it was a pleasure knowing them. I was with Thoman when he died, and I wish I had been somewhere else, because he took a big part of me, the caring part, with him." - Bob Miller
My Army book, “Kill Me If You Can, You SOB”, wasn’t written from memory.
It was my War Diary written while flying medevac and resupply missions out of LZ Betty in South Vietnam. Snow will be chin deep in Death Valley before I will apologize for jotting down the truth with the blood of the young men of the 3rd 506th infantry still on my hands.
So if you are in need of a bestselling military thriller, then you should buy one written by some guy who wasn’t there or some trooper who won the war after he or she was safely back home.
I assumed I was going to die in South Vietnam like my tent mates, CW2 Richard Arann and WO Theodore Thoman. I did not give a damn what the look the other way people back home thought about me or my War Diary.
And that is as true today as it was then. The only nice thing about P.T.S.D. is, when you look at fertilizer, you recognize it as manure.

My CIA book, “Alacrán, The Honey Badger”, is a witches brew of facts and fiction and I honestly do not know if I could sort them out.
It will never be a best CIA book. I was never a member of the Central Intelligence Agency. I was a member of a group of misanthropes who did not work for any official government agency, but was on Uncle Sam’s payroll.
We were charged with carrying out humanitarian projects that will most definitely send every American, dead or alive, to hell for eternity. My ninety-five year old mother is in her church, if the doors are unlocked and in my opinion, she is just as guilty for America’s Auschwitz and Dachau–Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo–as the Americans who tortured other humans whose only crime was being a Muslim living in the Middle East
It is my belief that both my books, “Conversations With God” and “An Angel Named Zabar” are fiction. Why wouldn’t I being a non-believer? I will go as far to say, hoping not to offend my non-believing friends, I can relate to the Bible story of Saul of Tarsus.
I do not know who has been slapping me blind all these years, but they can stop anytime. I got the message.
