Envision living in mud, eating food packed in 1941, witnessing hostilities from your enemies and among your friends. ‘The Dirty Thirty’ explains life as it was as a Gun-Bunny, a trucker, a thief and a soldier in the jungles and towns of South Vietnam Live as a draftee lived among the diversity of an army of draftees. The odd and endearing characters of ‘The Dirty Thirty’ and the strict ‘military minds’ of the Lifers, will give you a glimpse of the real Vietnam experience. Jolt at the realization that the NVA was not an ‘Evil Empire’, but a military force with a ‘cause’ and a heartfelt dedication among its soldiers. Be sad at the plights of individual U.S. soldiers at the mercy of the ‘Military Machine’. Be proud of the sacrifices made by the men and women of both sides during the 10,000 Day War. ‘The Dirty Thirty’ gives a day to day account of what life was really like on the fire bases in the jungles and hills of Vietnam and Cambodia in 1969-1970.

The Dirty Thirty is a friendly little workbook that will help you learn--and teach--some of the most useful (and most misused) words in our language. Words are like people--they can cause confusion, or bring pleasure. And sometimes the same words can do both. That's especially true of the tricky terms in The Dirty Thirty. We see them misused again and again, even by intelligent people who write and speak well. These words usually come in pairs (like affect-effect, who-whom, and stationery-stationary). They often look and sound a lot alike (capitol-capital), and they may be related in meaning (emigrate-immigrate). So it's no surprise that even professionals sometimes have trouble keeping them straight. This book will show you how. It focuses on words that we most need to know about--the ones that come up fairly often in speech and writing, and that competent users of our language are expected to know. You'll get clear explanations of the differences, and do short practice exercises to help you confirm that you understand and can use the words. And the format of The Dirty Thirty, with its clear explanation and short exercises, makes it an excellent teaching tool.

The early years of life set a foundation, the latter years are spent with memories and regrets, hopefully way more of the former and not the latter. But the middle years, baby! Those dirty thirty middle years, the twenties, thirties, and forties, are for loving, thinking, feeling, hurting, idealizing, and having the best time of your life. During the dirty thirty years a real taste of freedom is given, bills and responsibilities arise, the inner circle is formed and broken and reformed. The dirty thirty are critical to shaping a person, where they belong, showing them how, and what, they do matters, and ultimately who they are. Dirty Thirty - Year One, explores the first year of this woman's independence and awakening as she moves along her 21st year of life. Becoming a housewife, of sorts, earlier in life than most, she walks away from that life and lands in a situation with newfound freedom and independence, quickly losing herself. After several attempts to set minimum boundaries for herself and expectations for those around her, she has to make some big decisions.

Dirty Thirty - PB By: Billie Proffitt With a plethora of experiences by her late twenties, Billie Proffitt still felt overwhelmed by the pressure of deciding what she wanted. Raised that well-being is more valuable than the “should’s” of society, she examined not only the roads less traveled, but also the ones that nobody else saw. Her willingness to forge on even as these were littered with pitfalls, paint these non-chronological stories which make up the thirty most important lessons she learned by thirty. Believing as author Natalie Babbitt suggested, that it isn’t death to be feared, “but rather the unlived life,” this gifted storyteller marks the up’s, down’s, backward and eventual steps forward in life that span the range of human emotions. Billie is a bright, quirky, honest young woman who captures the beauty of the human condition with passion and humor - insight and determination. Dirty Thirty doesn’t evoke wistful regret for life’s lost opportunities, but instead inspires reaching toward the great days ahead that yet have to be lived.

"The miner's strike came to be called the "Great Strike", with good reason. It was the largest, longest, trade union struggle in Britain, and the most far reaching in its consequences since the 1926 General Strike. For a year 170,000 miners, plus the women in the mining communities, battled against everything the government and the police threw at them." "Only 30 miners out of 2,500 from Leicestershire coal-field struck against the pit closure programme. They became renowned as The Dirty Thirty and travelled the world for the strike fund selling badges, mugs and plates, making speeches and supporting the other striking miner." "David Bell has interviewed many of the members of the Dirty Thirty and the women's support group to find out why they struck, and why they held out for so long. Published to mark the 25th anniversary of the 1984-85 Miner's Strike, this is the story of the miners and their wives and families' courage, humour and an unbreakable will to win" --Book Jacket.
