Art Myers is a Viet Nam veteran with memories. In 2005 he and his wife Linda traveled to Viet Nam with a group led by a psychotherapist who works with veterans affected by Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). From the Mekong Delta in the south, to Hanoi in the north, it was a life-changing journey.

Art's story is not unusual. He was a sergeant in the Marine Corps in 1968, a radio repairman stationed at Da Nang during the Tet offensive. He saw only one day of combat, but that day affected every aspect of his life for 35 years.

Many veterans suffer from their memories of their time at war. They may bury them, or deny them, or run from them, or act out in other areas of their lives. Alcoholism, drug addiction and suicide rates are higher than average, as are failed relationships and chronic unemployment.

Art decided to return to Viet Nam, to overlay the memories of the young man during a terrible time with those of a man in late middle age. It was a good choice for him - and for his family.

About the book Art says, "I hope that talking about this journey of healing - and how it has changed me – will help other veterans and their families. The idea of helping even one other veteran stop the nightmares and gain some peace made my story worth sharing."

About the Author:

Linda Myers is the daughter of a military officer who served in the Marine Corps from World War II to Viet Nam. She earned a BA in English from the University of California, Santa Barbara during the war protests of the 1960s. Linda recently retired from a career in the IT industry and is now training to become a certified mediator. Arthur Myers served in the Marine Corps from 1964 to 1968, including seven months in Viet Nam. He then spent 40 years as a power company lineman. He was called away from home and family to work every storm. Now retired, he still jumps in the car to track down the source of power outages in his community. Linda and Art have a blended family of eight grown children. They now travel in the winter and tend a garden in the summer. They live near Seattle.
