Have I said this before? “I’ve forgotten more than most people remember.” Therefore, it is time critical that I write a new book.
I decided to continue my writing dream with a book, an historical fiction. Today, I started a new book about my Vietnam War and US Army memories, experiences, etc.
This photo is really me in Vietnam when I was assigned to the 1st RR Co (AVN) in Cam Ran Bay, 1967-68. The assignment was supposed to be temporary and lasted for many months! I was a crew member for Crazy Cat on P2V Neptune aircraft.
Writing this book will take a while. Much more time consuming than I thought. Forgot more than I thought! Trying to remember and sort through the memories.
Poet, Writer, US Army (Retired)
I dreamed of writing when I was a youngster. The love of books and writing may have helped to dull the pain of severe sexual abuse as I was sexually abused by two men at my father’s place of work from age 8 to 12 or so. I learned about this for the first time when I was 50 years old. So, as a boy, reading was the only place I had to go to. My fantasy world was better and safer than my real world. I loved reading and writing.
Reading books and writing poetry are a joy to me still and are an important part of my life. (See my About Me page on my blog for the complete profile.)
