Sixteen days before the Oct. 19 release of Three Days In August: A U.S. Army Special Forces Soldier’s Fight for Military Justice, I made note of how this publishing experience was already producing unexpected results. Today, I share more encouraging news: I’ve been asked to write two more books with ties to Special Forces soldiers.
The other book would tell the story of a young officer who, more than four decades after he served valiantly in Vietnam, has been nominated for the Medal of Honor, our nation’s highest military honor.
I hope to find the time to be able to tell both stories someday soon. Meanwhile, I’m thankful to those who approached me with the ideas and, at the same time, I’m flattered by their confidence in my ability to do justice to these stories.
FYI: Yesterday morning, I completed a 30-minute interview about my book with Stars & Stripes reporter John Vandiver. Will provide an update as soon as the story is published — if it is published, that is.
