That was when I noticed his autobiography about his service in Vietnam.
Being of a similar age to Don and having been well aware of the war in Vietnam, this story affected me perhaps more than someone younger. I read it in one day...
A young man who had a promising future before entering the war, returns from Vietnam a changed person. He will spend the next 42 years of his life as a misfit.
His memoirs are well documented so that one is drawn into the hopelessness resulting from a war fought by so many young, impressionable people. Don has struggled on when so many others have fallen by the wayside for one reason or another. I am quite humbled by his will to survive when up against so much adversity and ignorance.
I would highly recommend his 'The Boy Died in Vietnam' for an insight into war and the long-term effects.
Don is a member of Top Writers Block and I am happy to count him among my friends.
Don is a Vietnam Veteran. Just recently he spent several months in Vietnam working on his war memoirs - The Boy Died in Vietnam. He has written several novels and numerous short stories. His two favorite topics are love and life after death. Visit his website at the link below. Your comments are always appreciated!
