I am inquiring as to the title of the book that described Goggin's tour of duty with the Marines in Vietnam. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

REMEMBER HIM AS A UTILITY GUY VS. MY METS AND AS A BASEBALL CARD

COULDN'T FIND ANY BOOK, BUT MAJOR FEATURES IN SPORTING NEWS WERE MENTIONED THROUGH GOOGLE

much obliged, ac. I can recall only that the book was written by his commanding officer and that Goggin and him had been quite close. Thanks again.

Eureka! I found the book with help from google and ac. I had tried  google before but I left out the proper prompts apparently. Thanks for the hint, ac. The book is entitled "Ride the Thunder" by Richard Botkin and features Chuck Goggin as well as others. Some great photos, too. Chuck got his first hit in the same game as Clemente got his last. Good reading!
