Product description

Product Description

When aimless, nineteen-year-old boyhood friends catch war fever at the height of the Vietnam conflict, they dream of adventure, glory and the romance of victory. Within weeks of beginning their combat tour as U.S. Marines, one is dead, a hero who has selflessly sacrificed his life to save his friend. Grievously wounded, the comatose survivor fights to stay alive for the girl they both loved. “Finding David” is the touching story of young, unfinished lives, unquenchable love, broken hearts and haunted minds, and an enduring devotion to “Semper Fi” — always faithful.

Although “Finding David” is a work of fiction, it is based on a war that fifty years later is still a source of pain that changed America forever. For many of those who fought the battles of Vietnam and returned to a deeply divided country, the scars of their service are often unhealed and untreated. It was in the wake of Vietnam that we began to recognize and confront one of war’s most horrific legacies: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. “Finding David” is a story dedicated to a nineteen-year-old friend and classmate, David Michael Kirk, who survived just fifty-five days in the jungles of Vietnam as a U.S. Marine, in the hope that it helps to continue to raise awareness of the desperate need for greater efforts to help those suffering from PTSD.

About the Author

He is now pursuing a life-long ambition to write fiction and especially to explore the "What if?" questions of history.
