See what War is like and how it affects our Warriors

Welcome to my Website

Have you ever wondered why young soldiers return home “changed” or “different” after their deployment to a war zone? If the answer is “YES” then this website is for you! Here, you’ll find most everything is Vietnam War related – over 300+ personal narratives, photos, videos, movies, artwork, war book reviews, and favorite music of the time. Much of what is presented herein also impacts today’s soldiers, so here’s your opportunity to learn more about war and its warriors.

I have also published two Vietnam War books about my personal experiences in Vietnam; book descriptions, trailers, book samples, author interviews, photo slide shows, and ordering information are all available herein.

There are two ways to navigate through my website – the first is a menu [within the red border area above] with clickable drop down menus, the second, cites specific links and topics along the right border of every page.

The Category” menu tab above works in two ways: when clicking on it and disregarding the drop down menu, you’ll be redirected to the main blog site where all article headlines and featured photos are posted in chronological order by publication date [newest to oldest]. There you can scroll down through the 300 + articles and click on those that interest you.

The drop down menu on the Category” tab shows a list of categories – all articles on this website are now individually categorized and articles of similar interests are “clumped” together. When clicking on a specific category, only those articles pertaining to that group will show up.

I have read hundreds of war books over the years and normally post book reviews on Amazon, Goodreads, and other websites. I’ve gathered them together, sorted the titles alphabetically, and placed them into separate files. So, when clicking on a folder, all the book titles in that group are listed. I’m currently looking into a way of making the book titles have live links and clicks will take you directly to the review of that title.

Military Slang is the most visited page on my website. Here visitors can see a list of slang terms used by soldiers during the Vietnam War along with definitions, photos, and examples. A second article addresses the many “Nicknames” inherited by soldiers at the time. Sadly, many soldiers were only known by their nicknames as real names were seldom used. This made it difficult for many of us to locate those brothers we served with later in life. 

“My two Books” tab will direct you to articles relating to my books. You’ll find book descriptions, trailers, author interviews (written and video), free sample chapters (25% of the book), audiobook snippets to VN photos, awards, and direct links to their purchase and review sites.

Wen choosing the “HOME” tab, you’ll land back on this page.

I hope you enjoy your visit. Thank you, and don’t forget to spread the word.

I’m currently reworking this website to make it more user friendly. Please pardon the dust.
