Goodreads asked Dennis Hodgdon:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Dennis Hodgdon Over the last forty years I have noted the public's reaction to war veterans. Changes have taken place because real people who really care have stepped forward to embrace the returning vets. That wasn't always the case particularly for my own generation in dealing with Vietnam. I wanted to give voice to how devastating that was for those men and women and look at the long-term effects serving in an unpopular war continues to have on them.
