My memory is kicking my rear yet again. Back in school (1980-ish) I read a book and for the life of me I cannot remember the name or author. (I *think* it is R. Zelazny, but not sure)

The plot was about a guy (Viet Nam Vet?) that went to work for an old guy as a bodyguard and at some point the old man woke up as a young man, but had no memories. After a bunch of (mis)adventure, it turns out the older guy is of an alien race that every 65-70 years they store their memories in a machine & their body regens to a youthful state in which they can reinstate their memories.

Ring any bells? Anyone recall title? Author?
