“I loved this book. It made me laugh, it made me cry, but most of all it made me feel I was there.” ~ Hope Ellis, Amazon Review

“June Collins is not afraid to show the steamier side of some of the people who were there to profit from the war, and to use anyone they had to to do so. This would seem like an unbelieveable tale, if it had not been documented by news stories and other sources. I for one am pleased to have read something that tells it like it was.” ~ Florida Bookworm, Amazon Review

About the Author: June Collins made international news headlines in 1969 when she became a whistle-blower and testified before a U.S. Senate Committee. She pointed the finger at a group of corrupt American Army sergeants who had made millions in Vietnam by demanding kickbacks from all booking agents and sales people. June had provided entertainment groups to the US military camps during the war. The Khaki Mafia, a slightly fictionalized account of the events, was co-authored with Robin Moore (The French Connection.)
During her many years living in Asia, June had become appalled by the plight of the abandoned street children. In her home country, Australia, adoption was near impossible. Therefore, she chose to remain in the USA. Over the next few years she married an Alaskan King Crab fisherman and together, they adopted six children from India, Korea, Columbia and the USA. The children ranged in age from three to thirteen.
After a turbulent life, she now resides in relative tranquility on a mountain top overlooking the ocean in Queensland Australia.

“I felt like June was sitting with me telling me her story, her voice came across with honesty and clarity. An extraordinary account of her years in Vietnam but I also related to her life in Australia in the 50′s and 60′s. Not my usual choice but I found it hard to put down.” ~ Caroline Edwards, Amazon Review
