It tells the story of a young man who joins the Marine Corps during the Vietnam war, ends up in combat during a couple of operations in Cambodia at the end of the war, returns to the United States, and begins trying to deal with the aftermath of war...and life back home. Warning...this is not a slick Hollywood version - the action, language, and life effects are told from the perspective of a real, young combat grunt - gritty and in your face.(less)

Suffice it to say that my career (and most of my deplo... Read more of this blog post »

A writer writes. So, stop saying you're "aspiring" or "plotting." Just write and make a daily habit of doing so. You'll be surprised to actually finish a project because of your discipline. :)
