Former Army Spc. 4 Nelson Koon of Moriarty was a 19-year-old cannoneer in Vietnam when his lightly manned firebase in Vietnam's Central Highlands was about to be overrun by an estimated 6,000 North Vietnamese troops. For the first time in 45 years, Nelson will meet his former commander, Capt. William Albracht, during a book signing in Albuquerque.
