Jerry Hall's spiral into the Vortex continues with Volume II of Yes Sir, Yes Sir, 3 Bags Full! As a Forward Air Controller (FAC) in the Viet Nam War, Jerry's journey takes him from innocence and a profound sense of pride in wearing his uniform to the depths of despair, self-loathing, and grief. In Volume II, Jerry tells the story of his rapid decline into alcohol abuse and dangerous living. In doing so, he offers a heart-wrenching account of what it was like to fight a war that was a source of both anger and protest among many American citizens of the era. This book, as well as Volume I, is a must-read for anyone who is interested in history and the military, and how post-traumatic stress disorder impacts survivors of trauma and their loved ones.

As a combat pilot, he flew more than 350 missions in Viet Nam, receiving numerous awards and decorations. After receiving an honorable discharge, he purchased a farm in upstate New York and lived there until 1978, when he returned to his native home with his family and founded an advertising and publishing company. In 2011, Hall contracted Stage IV lung cancer that was directly attributed to his exposure to Agent Orange in the war. He died on August 25, 2015.
