My website is within hours of obtaining 5 million hits since its birth, shortly after publishing my first book, CHERRIES: A VIETNAM WAR NOVEL. Back then, I never imagined that I’d publish five more books, but since retirement, writing seems to be in my blood. This website has been a godsend to me and thousands of other Vietnam Vets and their families. I meant for many of my postings to be learning experiences that teach those unfamiliar with the war and what our warriors endured during their combat tours. Over the years, vets have thanked me for putting into words what they could not talk about. Family members also testified that they’ve learned so much about what their loved ones might have experienced and now have a better relationship. A win-win for everyone!
Here are some achievements made on this website since its inception:
o Published over 565 articles and thousands of photos about the war and its warriors across 12 different categories
o Collected and posted over a dozen taped and published author interviews over the years about my books
o Consolidated my personal reviews and ratings of 180 Vietnam War books
o Both my ‘Vietnam War photo slide show’ and ‘Military Slang’ post are quite popular and were viewed the most
o Collected over one-hundred Vietnam War videos with actual footage along with music of the era
o Most posts were converted to audio and can be listened to on Spotify
o And finally, links, book trailers, sample chapters, and other info about my books are available under the ‘My published books’ tab
As a reward to my readers for reaching this milestone, I am giving away  electronic copies of each of my six books. I’ve arranged for this only on Smashwords.com. Apply the coupon code below at checkout. Smashwords will provide a download in whatever format you request.
