From the Publisher
This book contains graphic war, survival, love and humor.It is for readers who want to know what it was like to serve in Vietnam. For twenty-seven years after serving in Vietnam I suffered from Delayed Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome. In 1983 a psychiatrist, told me I needed to get into group therapy. I declined immediately because I didn’t want to talk about my ‘Nam experience. She told me I should record my nightmares & flashbacks; and to dig down deep and pull out all the stressful memories. I did this, and the more I wrote, the more I hurt and the more I hurt, the more I cried.I wrote for two years and began to feel better about myself and about Vietnam. I had so many notes I decided to try and write them into a book. I didn’t have to do any research.This is how GUNNER’S WINGS came to be. I wrote this story about the helicopter side of the war.
