2015 was a very busy year finishing CONTRASTS OF WAR and bringing my Vietnamese fiance Le Thi Kim San to the U.S.  We were married on December 5th, 2015.  Now back to work on GELA REMEMBERED!  I am still trying to locate more veterans who served at Fire Support Base Gela in 1969.  For everyone who we've been in touch with so far I want to let you know there is still some time to send any stories, pictures, or memories you would like to have included in GELA REMEMBERED.  If you haven't submitted anything yet, I encourage you to do so.  Each of your own experiences and memories are important and necessary for the story of Fire Support Base Gela to be told in the manner it deserves.   If you know of any other Gela vets we can contact please let me know. 

CONTRASTS OF WAR is still available and continues to garner outstanding reviews on Amazon. (23 ALL Five Star reviews on last count).  The book is listed on Amazon for $29, however visitors to this website can order the book here for $25.  Simply click on the "Buy Now" button above. 

I continue to make additions on the GELA VET page. I strive to keep this list accurate and up to date but I realize errors can be made so please let me know if I need to make any corrections, alterations or additions. 

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, concerns, comments or suggestions.  Your input is needed and always very welcome.   Thank you!
