Hard Lessons

Hard Lessons

For many of us, life lessons are learned the hard way. When we reach a place of stability and calm, we are able to look back on those life-changing experiences and reflect on what they meant, and how they changed us. Read my story about how lessons I learn throughout life and my service in Vietnam shaped my personality and my beliefs in my book "Hard Lessons: Lessons Learned The Hardest Last The Longest".

My book cover displays a photo of myself and two of my Marine buddies in Vietnam in '68-'69. From left to right: Speedy, who lives in California and suffers from health complications linked to Agent Orange; Next is Dutch, passed away last year (health complications also linked to Agent Orange), and I am the last guy with the cig in my mouth, smoked then but I don't smoke now.
