I graduated from Ballard High School in 1966, Seattle Washington. Destined to be drafted, I joined the Marine Corps in 1967. After serving twelve months & twenty-five days in Vietnam, I was Honorably Discharged in 1969. My service in Vietnam included seven months of combat.
While working and struggling with blended family responsibilities, I dealt with my Combat Traumatic experiences, for nearly twenty-five years.
Writing was part of the healing. Assembling the experiences into a respectable, edited, published work, took nearly twenty years while finishing counseling.
My hope is to continue writing; it’s my inner unquenchable thirst.
