Bury us Upside Down

This is my most recent book available online.




 Bury Us Upside Down

Bury Us Upside Down is a book about 157 men who flew a special, Top Secret mission during the Vietnam War. It is an epic story about men who flew the early supersonic jet fighters, risking their lives in aerial combat. But, it is much more than a book about men at war. It is about the effect of war on men and the women they loved, their families and their nation. It is a book about men who risked their lives daily in a meaningless war in which the nation had lost interest. It is a book about a nation whose leaders lied and whose Congress then abandoned its allies. It is a tragic story with a moral imperative and historical and very human interest. In this book, truth and real life are stranger than fiction.






My second book with First person stories about the F-100 Misty Fast FACs in the Vietnam War,

 also available online.


Misty is a collection of first person stories of 157 pilots who flew in a special Top Secret mission during the Vietnam War. These are personal stories full of emotion, drama, tragedy and humor. These are the stories of 157 men who were in heavy combat daily. The Misty pilots often coped with danger, anger and frustration by employing irreverent gallows humor. The authors use fighter pilot language. These were difficult times in a long war. The men in this book flew in the Vietnam War when they were in their 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s. They are now in their 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s. These are their memories. Strap in, hold on an enjoy the ride.
