Tracks Memoirs of a Vietnam Veteran is a true story of a young man growing up in a small town. Three days after graduating high school he was on his way to USMC boot camp, knowing he would go to Vietnam to fight in a war for his country. After boot camp came infantry training, then tanks. He trained in tanks for almost three years. He was sent on two Mediterranean cruises - here you will read stories that will bring tears to your eyes from laughing. After a short stint as a brig guard, he was off to Vietnam. Soon after arriving in Vietnam he was made a tank commander, soon a section leader and later a platoon sergeant. As a tank commander his tank struck a large land mine, where he was knocked unconscious. His tank and crew were abandoned on the battlefield. His tank and crew were hit by a US artillary. Coming home was the worst part of his life. He was more comfortable in the Vietnam War than his own country. His daily prayer in Vietnam was "Please God I know I will never go home alive, but please let me die in peace and dignity and not screaming and crying in pain and agony and please don't let me do anything stupid and get our own men killed." Tracks was selfpublished and sold over 1000 copies and an unknown amount on Kindle. All profits from this book have been donated to Libraries, schools and Veterans groups.

These are stories of first-hand war experiences written in their own words. Go deep into the thoughts of the men who were there, risking lives and limbs for you, the people of the U. S. No one has ever sacrificed more for you than these men. Some gave their lives, most were never the same. A Tribute to Tankers is available on Amazon. Five Star rating from Good Reads.
B. A. R. Man, Browning Automatic Rifle Man, is the story of a quiet man who carried a great secret. As a young man, he wanted nothing more than to serve his country in the only manner he knew how, the United States Army. People who knew him had no idea, that he did some very amazing things in the Korean War, until he was wounded, captured and forced to march 200 miles, with no medical attention and little food. Only to be released to an ungrateful country. I am proud to know this true American hero.
B. A. R. MAN is available on Amazon and at Professional Pharmacy in Pennsburg, PA.
B. A.R. Man was given a Four Star rating by Readers' Favorite and a Five Star rating from Bernie Weisz. Five Stars from Good Reads.
