Author and Vietnam War veteran David G. Duchesneau has released a compelling new book, “Uniforms,” offering readers an in-depth look at how uniforms can shape an individual’s journey through different stages of life. This memoir weaves a poignant narrative that spans Duchesneau’s early years in a New England town, his service in the United States Marine Corps during the Vietnam War, and his career in law enforcement.

Uniforms is a gripping story that begins with Duchesneau’s childhood, attending parochial school under the watchful eyes of nuns. From there, the book delves into his experiences with a drum and bugle corps, where uniforms symbolized discipline, teamwork, and a sense of belonging. Duchesneau then takes readers through the intense challenges of Marine Corps boot camp at Parris Island in 1968 and his subsequent deployment to Vietnam. His vivid descriptions of combat experiences in Vietnam’s Quang Tri Province and Da Nang offer an unflinching look at the harsh realities of war.

Upon his return to civilian life, Duchesneau continued wearing uniforms as he joined the Rochester Fire Department’s call force and later the New Hampshire State Police. These experiences highlight the adaptability and resilience that come with transitioning from military to civilian roles while still embracing the sense of identity that uniforms can provide.

Duchesneau’s journey is a heartfelt tribute to the impact of uniforms on shaping identity and fostering a sense of belonging. Readers will be engrossed in the vivid storytelling and deeply moved by each chapter’s honesty and raw emotion.

David G. Duchesneau brings a wealth of experience to his writing.
