The story of my country,

the story of my generation...


I am, or at least, I may be, your friend or your neighbor...  

We can communicate, because, 

although our experiences are different, 

we are all basically the same at heart.


I have always gone to work, done my duty, 

and tried to be a good friend and relative.

Now, in early retirement, I share with young people

 the experiences I have had, the lessons I have learned.

  Many of those lessons involve the Vietnam War,  

but I use my war experiences as a starting point

to talk to young people about choices and values, 

to raise questions that they will have to answer,

whether or not they ever have to go to war.
