Richard's new book, Snapshots From The Vietnam War will be available soon!
Richard's presentation, The Choices We Make, may be a great fit for your organization.
To give you some background, almost fifty years ago, Richard made an innocent choice that landed him in the Vietnam War as a combat infantry soldier. Through it all, he figured out how to endure. That experience is what led him to write 21 Months, 24 Days, a memoir about his journey to the war and back. He shares some of those memories in his presentation with his snapshots from Vietnam. On the surface is a story of how he ended up a grunt in Vietnam. Underneath is a story of acceptance and coping with the strain of war. He ends with ideas that have helped him make informed choices and remain calm under fire.
Here is what Chris Woods, Director of the Ventress Memorial Library in Marshfield , MA said about his presentation:
“(His) presentation last night was excellent. So moving! I know all in the audience were touched by it. What a moving first-hand account of the sacrifices war imposes! But what stands out most is the character, coping and camaraderie of this soldier with his fellow troop members, and how he came to grips with the experience through positive thinking and actions. Truly inspiring!!”
