About this product
- DescriptionThis book consists of 35 letters that I wrote to my aunt while I was serving in Vietnam from October of 1967 1968. The letters contain my thoughts as a young Marine and continued through the end of my tour where I was still young but far more experienced.the letters came to me when my aunt mailed them to me 33 years after Vietnam. One of her comments was she believed that I should have the letters published. My thoughts were that they were too personal to be published and would t be of any benefit to anyone. It is my opinion w that these letters might hold some insight into the young people that are in current times serving their country. It seems we all share a lot of commonalities, and I am hopeful that men and women who are serving at this time will draw some comfort from these letters. I'm also hopeful these letters will inspire others who will face difficulties after their tours to meet the challenge of readjusting.
- Author BiographyI have been writing poetry prose and short stories beginning in 1967 while serving in Vietnam as a young Marine. It has been my good fortune to reconnect with people who have read my writings in a positive way through the years. I believe that we are connected through our experiences and in the sharing of our experiences our connection is made more clear. It is my hope to continue not only to share previous experiences but the ones of today which are passing so quickly.
