Eighteen With a Bullet Synopsis

This is the story of my life. I describe my journey through ten years of Catholic school where beatings and brainwashing were the norm, my survival in a good Catholic family whom I believe were mentally ill, getting drafted during the Vietnam war and fighting there as a Marine for one year, during which 95% of my Company were either killed or wounded, coming back to a chaotic America determined to make something of my life. I describe the terrible effects of PTSD and how I finally conquered it after 30 years of psycho-therapy and medications. It is a story of utter desolation and ultimate redemption. I want to demonstrate that no matter how far down we go, we can still rise up and redeem ourselves.

Europe is a living Work of Art

4,000 years of rich history, the birthplace of Democracy, priceless art, architecture , music and literature. Fantastic people whose philosophy of life is "Less is More", and they are right.

I was born in Long Beach, CA in 1946. Soon after finishing high school, I was drafted into the US Marine Corps  and after boot camp and some more advanced training, I was sent to Vietnam as a rifleman, or grunt. I was fortunate to survive a full year of combat even though my Company suffered 95% casualties. I returned from Vietnam and immediately enrolled in College, where I majored in Electronic Engineering. 
It took seven years for me to earn my BS and MS in Electronic Engineering at UCLA. My first job was at Hughes Aircraft in Culver City where I helped design High Energy Lasers, Infrared Imaging, Laser Spot Trackers, and secure Laser Communication links. 
After working for 38 years as an Engineer and traveling all over the world, I retired at the age of 62 and starting writing in earnest. I have now completed and published six books although the first one is no longer in print.
I have traveled to at least 55 countries in the past 50 years, for both business and pleasure. I have been married for 45 years and live in Orange County, CA.
