Remembering a Vietnam Soldier
Sister Offers Memorial for all Unsung Heroes of Vietnam with Collection of Letters
NEWTON, Kan. – Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it. With this in mind, Karen Ross Epp shares the story of her brother, a fallen Vietnam soldier, in her book, With Love Stan: A Soldier’s Letters from Vietnam to the World (now available through AuthorHouse), to remind people of the consequences of war as America faces another controversial conflict.
            Epp’s brother, Sp4 Stanley D. Ross, was killed in Vietnam on Oct. 20, 1969. In an effort to keep his memory alive, Epp is publishing a collection of letters and photos saved by her mother, Rose, and herself. The letters begin with Stan’s experiences in basic training. He continued to write to his family throughout his tour of duty.
            The book also includes contributions from friends and family. With written memories from family and fellow squad members and photographs from friends, the book offers a realistic portrait of the conflict in Vietnam through the experiences of one fallen soldier and the family who loved him.
            “This book gives readers a clear view into a family trying to go on with life as a beloved son and brother faces down death and deals with an enemy only heard of and read about in the news,” Epp says. “Ultimately, With Love Stan is about the love of family, tradition and duty to country.”
            With Love Stan also provides a realistic portrait of the average soldier. “It was (my) goal to shed light on who the Vietnam foot soldier really was. He was from a working class family, and he was barely out of high school. The average age of the American draftee was 18, while the average age of a soldier in WWII was 25. Officers and other enlisted men who were 23 or older were considered ‘old men,’” Epp says.
            Epp’s book also provides a much needed memorial for all soldiers who lost their lives or fought in the deadly conflict. “With Love Stan gives the respect that is due these brave men and women who were treated so badly when they returned home,” she says.
            She hopes that readers will draw parallels between Vietnam and the war in Iraq. “(It) is a timely story, one that is being played out today as our youth are sent off to fight in yet another controversial war in Iraq,” she says.
            Born and raised near Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, Epp lived there until she left for college. She holds a bachelor’s degree from Bethel College in North Newton, Kan., and a master’s degree from Wichita State University. She taught middle school until her retirement in 2004. She and her husband, Phil, currently live in rural Kansas. More information is available at, www.karenrossepp.com
