Thankful and Flattered

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.

One book would tell the story of a man, his estranged son and the incredible and unusual way in which their paths crossed again after years apart.

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.

Stay tuned!

FYI:  Yesterday morning, I completed a 30-minute interview about my book with Stars & Stripes reporter John VandiverWill provide an update as soon as the story is published — if it is published, that is.

Bob’s first published book, Three Days In August: A U.S. Army Special Forces Soldier’s Fight For Military Justice (October 2011), chronicles the life story and wrongful conviction of Sgt. 1st Class Kelly A. Stewart, a highly-decorated Green Beret combat veteran. In his second book, THE CLAPPER MEMO (May 2013), Bob connects the dots between a memo signed by James R. Clapper Jr. — the man now serving as our nation’s top intelligence official — and the deaths of dozens of Americans in Afghanistan at the hands of our so-called Afghan “allies” wearing the uniforms of their nation’s military, police and security forces.
