summer rain...
in his hands,
the entrails of a friend


Soldiers grow close to those they fight alongside with. They do everything
together. A bond is formed only another soldier who’s been in battle can understand. Pretences are jettisoned. A person’s fears and eccentricities exposed. I will never forget those I served with during the Vietnam War. They were my friends. People I entrusted my life with. Many soldiers died horrific deaths. Sights surpassing anything seen in a horror movie. Many of those who fought in the Vietnam War are haunted today by what they saw and experienced. Writing this series helps me to exorcise these ghosts.
