My Name is America: The Journal of Patrick Seamus Flaherty: United States Marine Corps, Khe Sanh, Vietnam, 1968
by Ellen Emerson White

A young marine is fighting a war no one understands while his sister is fighting on the home front to end the war in Vietnam and bring her brother home. An agonizing dilemma plagues these brother-sister diarists. He is a Marine stationed in Vietnam and provides a compelling soldier story. She is at home in America, far away from her brother's war zone, fighting for peace. As the marine writes in his journal about his experiences as a soldier, fighting an enemy he can't see, his sister seeks peace. Poignant and complex, these two characters will give readers glimpse into perhaps the most tumultuous time in modern American history.

This book is part of the My Name is America series---a series of fictional journal accounts by boys living in different times in American history.  There is also a related series of fictional diaries written by girl characters---the Dear America series. Both series are written in the form of historical fiction diaries and are fantastic to use when teaching American history or even diary/journal writing.
