Jonathon Jonesabout this book: Published for my father, the bravest man I know. This is a true story. A first-hand account of one man's experiences in Vietnam, but it goes beyond that of a typical war story. In this journey of self-discovery, a man I have known all of my life changes from a small, near-tortured boy to that of a man stuck in the clenches of war. In the end, his miraculous transformation, based on who he was and what he experienced, leads him to life lessons he sorely needed to learn. Forty-five years in the making, this is a must-have for any service member, Veteran, or those who know one.
"Some of the events I witnessed during that moment were beyond comprehension. I watched a young, courageous black medic take an 80-millimeter round to his head, and his whole body instantly turned to smoke. Young nineteen and twenty year olds kids were crying like children, but fighting like someone had raped their sisters. So many things were going through my head at that moment, and in one single heartbeat I was overwhelmed with a flashback of my entire life. This is my story, from point A to B, of my life and times in the midst of hell on Earth."
