Each One a Hero: a Novel of War and Brotherhood

“Each One a Hero,” is dedicated to all the loyal young men and women who answered their Country’s call and served in the Armed Forces during the Vietnam conflict.

To the brave souls who’ve paid the ultimate price and the countless others who still today, carry the physical and emotional scars of war, we thank you for defending our freedom. This message of appreciation may be a bit late coming, but America loves you and will always cherish their heroes.

In the tradition of Catch 22 and MASH, 'Each One a Hero' stretches the limits and dynamics of serving in the military. By some odd chance, should the Big Lebowski and Platoon unite and decide to procreate, this tale of fiction, taking place during the Vietnam Conflict, would be the product of such an imperfect union.

In July of 1967, a rebellious college dropout finds himself serving with the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment in Vietnam. He is not your prototypical draftee. His irreverent demeanor, offbeat sense of humor and optimistic attitude help to buoy him, as he faces the horrors of war while keeping a watchful eye on the churning turbulence of change blowing across America.

As friends become nightly news statistics, he has no choice but to absorb the pain and continue to fight; fight for his own and for his brothers' survival. Is there any meaning in all this death and destruction? Does God actually exist?

One must be patient. The answers are revealed in due time.
