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.

Welcome, Gregory, to the RRBC family. Your memoir looks like an eye-opener on the abuses at Camp Pendleton, California. I’m in the Vietnam war generation and remember how poorly we treated returning soldiers. The book is on my TBR list and I’m looking forward to reading it.
