The Ugly Secrets of Private Roy chronicles the treacherous journey of one young Harlemite’s US Army career during America’s iconic 1960’s decade. PVT Edward Roy raises many heated questions and exposes America’s dark secrets by declaring that the US government continues to hide its horrific secrets from the American people.

So many heated questions are raised. Over 50 years have passed since the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, and 75 percent of the American people still don't believe a single gunman was responsible for his death. This year also marks the fiftieth anniversary of the assassination of Malcolm X, and the FBI continues to withhold information on their role in his death and the death of others. Riveting, dramatic, and based on truth, The Ugly Secrets of Private Roy sheds new light on those who orchestrated the killings of both JFK and the black activist; as it explores a host of Ugly American Secrets committed during the 1960’s ·Was the AIDS virus developed and used as a weapon of mass destruction? ·Why exactly did the French Government deny Malcolm X entry into France on February 9, 1965, a few days before his death? ·Why are the great Buffalo Soldiers, members of the previously all-black 24th Infantry Regiment, still waiting for their military performance record in Korea to be cleared? ·Were Chemical, Biological (HIV) and Nuclear Weapons tested on unsuspecting American soldiers; and many more? Surrounding itself in a conspiracy of silence, the US government denies any connection in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and Malcolm X. This novel will open readers' eyes to the connection between these two historical assassinations and the development of the destructive HIV virus and many other Ugly Secrets of the US Government. The settings are rich in imagery, the characterizations strong and intense. Featuring personalities such as Private Roy's mentor, WWII veteran Sergeant Lonzo Morgan, Jewish holocaust survivor Sergeant Jacob, "The Wolfman," Sammerson, Korean War Veteran Lieutenant Masterson a.k.a. "Colonel Snow White,” trusted friend Hayman "Topdog," Swilley and Bridgett, the hero's third girlfriend. In 2002, the Pentagon revealed that experiments using Chemical, Biological, and Radiological Weapons were tested on civilians and soldiers. In the past forty years, in Sub Saharan Africa, over 28.5 million people were infected with the HIV/AIDS Virus? And yet, in 1962 when the author entered the United States Army, the number of people in the world identified as infected with the virus was zero. The Ugly Secrets of Private Roy is a gritty, raw, and honest review of some of the most significant events in American history and provides a fresh look at this questionable topic. A trophy book for the ultimate conspiracy theorist, this thought-provoking, challenging, and stimulating novel is based on actual events with a sensuous storyline, and despite its serious content, is peppered with humor.

From the Author:

This is my first work and it has taken me over ten years to produce; it has been a labor of love and truth. At the time I was in the middle of these events, it was like standing in the middle of the New York Thru-way and being asked to read the license plates of all cars going north and south. It has taken me forty years to do that. It is my hope that I will motivate my readers to become true Americans by taking responsibility for correcting our ugly secrets and not just revealing them.
Thank you
Edward Roy

From the Back Cover:

After much internal conflict, Private Edward Roy, a.k.a. "The Milkman," joined the army in 1962 to march directly into two of American's most momentous events: the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy and Malcolm X. Was there a connection between the killings?  The author takes the reader on a vivid, compelling, and controversial journey that stretches from America to Europe. The author argues that the US government withheld information vital to proving the answer to this debated question. Steeped in black military history, this powerful and gripping tale balances the seriousness of war with humor and romance under intriguing chapter headings such as: 

  • The Original Black Panthers
  • The Ultimate Weapon
  • The Bitch of Buchenwald
  • Ozark Red Lipstick
  • Blood on the Risers
  • Cries of a Wounded Soul
  • The American Praetorian Guard
 
Based upon a true story, The Ugly Secrets of Private Roy is written in the memory of Sergeant Lonzo and the millions of American soldiers of African slave decent whose unheralded sacrifices for the United States are buried on battlefields and in the cemeteries of every continent on the globe.
Raised in Harlem, Edward Roy received his basic infantry training at Fort Dix, New Jersey, during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Later, he enrolled in the Army's Medical Corpsmen School at Fort Sam Houston in Texas. He served three years mostly in Europe, received an honorable discharge, and completed college on the GI Bill. Married for forty-three years, he has two children and eight grandchildren.
