“The show no sooner ended when my son phoned me and said, “Dad, I learned a lot about you today during your Veterans Radio interview. I just want to say thank you for what you did over there and thank you for being my father.”
—Ray Essenmacher, Vietnam Combat Medic.

“Veterans often share details about their agonizing search for “normal.” Eventually some find their way back to everyday life and happiness, while others continue to struggle day and night with secret nightmares. Sailor Man is the compelling and emotional story about one World War II veteran who never made it back to normal. This book describes the personal cost of war paid by one man and his family, and it will break your heart- especially if you are a child of a combat veteran.” Joyce Faulkner, award winning author of “In the Shadow of Suribachi”.
