He Was A Good Marine So Why Was He Discharged for Misconduct? Author Michael Short tells the Story of A Marine who Endured Torture as a POW during the Vietnam War and the Pain of Being Discharged for Misconduct Years Later Paw Paw, WV - (Release Date TBD) - How did it all end up the way it did? Albert proved to be a good Marine bearing the agony and torture as a Prisoner of War (POW), but why was he given a general discharge for misconduct? Author Michael Short tells the true, gripping, and harrowing events that happened in Fall from Grace, his new book released through Xlibris. Albert was a United States Marine. As a gunnery sergeant, Albert's moral compass had always been duty, honor, country. In 1968, he was in the TET Offensive in Hue City, Republic of South Vietnam. There were several NVA dead bodies lying near, and he was ready to fire his M-16 at any North Vietnamese soldiers running past him. But then, he felt the barrel of an AK-47 assault rifle touch the back of his head. Unadulterated fear rushed through him, and before he could look to see who had pointed the rifle at him, he felt a crushing blow to the side of his head. Consciousness left him. When he regained his senses, he had been captured by North Vietnamese soldiers. Torture began as the enemy attempted to force information from him. His cellmate was Lance Corporal Mack, who also received the same brutal physical torment. Through it all, they never gave information to their torturer. They suffered much - almost to the point of death. He was afflicted but never lost hope. He lived by the Marine Code - the Core Values. But after days of being a tortured POW, he escaped, returned to the states to learn that he had been listed as MIA. He would spend more than eighteen years as a Marine, and his "fall from grace" would be unexpected, traumatic, and extremely difficult to bear. Readers will find out what really happened as they leaf through the pages of Fall from Grace. For more information on this book, log on to www.Xlibris.com.
