The Dirty Thirty

The Dirty Thirty

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 Dirty Thirty

The Dirty Thirty

Imagine being just twenty-one, thirteen thousand miles from home in a strange country where the inhabitants want to kill you! 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.

Dirty Thirty

Dirty Thirty

Dirty Thirty 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.
