At one point in time, Bruce Walker was just an ordinary student athlete at UCLA playing on yet another soccer field at a time when the unpopular Vietnam War was taking center stage on many college campuses. For himself, Walker was too busy earning an economics degree, playing soccer, and completing his marine reserve officer training course to merely get involved in a protest.
He has graduate school in his sights, but the Marine Corps has other plans for him. Upon graduation, Walker is commissioned a second lieutenant and soon finds himself in the vortex of the Vietnam war. While dealing with the death and personal injury suffered from deadly combat in the Vietnam conflict, Walker must come to grips with the loss of his first love, Lupita Viviano-Sanchez.
Providing insight into the turbulent times of the 1960s, To Love Again tells the story of a decade marked by social and political unrest, in which generational and racial norms of an era were being challenged and cultures and cultural classes began to intercourse and collide.
