Hutch was a door gunner in Vietnam with D Troop 3/5 Cav. 9th Inf. Div. 1968. He resides in Fredericksburg Texas with his wife, Theresa whom he married before joining the Army.
He writes: “I have little education but I like to write stories about my times in Vietnam. It seems to help me deal with my feelings. I was just a common soldier, not a hero; neither did I stand out in any way. However I did serve with some of the bravest men on earth.”
