I have written a memoir that tells the story of my tour of duty in Vietnam. After reading my story you will know what Vietnam was truley like for the men who accually fought it.

Background Information

I am a retired Constable from Ma. After reading many other soldier's accounts of what they experienced in Vietnam, I thought it was about time for those who were not there, to read what it was really like to have accually fought in Vietnam, not just one battle, but from my first day in country, untill my very last.

As I begain to write my story, it slowley dawned on me that this was not just My Story, but it was the story of so many thousands of others who served their country, as an Infantryman in Vietnam. As you read my story,I wanted this fact to be known. For there are so many that will for one reason or another, not write their personnel account of what they experienced and it is with this thought in mind that I have dedicated my book to those brave men, that sacrificed, their blood and sweat in the rice paddies and jungles of Vietnam, so long ago.

Birth Place
Brockton, MA USA

Ma Constable 25 years, Past Commander American Legion, Life Time member VFW.

Additional Information

I have been traveling this past year to events as well as numerous Military bases, to promote my book (have signed and sold just over 5000 copies)and will continue in the coming year.I have tenitive plans to return to Vietnam, to visit some of the places that I have mentioned in my book, the Tunnels of Cu Chi, ect. It will help me I am sure to be back there, where it all took place. A follow up book will then be forthcoming. that will tell of this trip and give me an opportunity to include events that were not included in my first book.
