“MORONG, PHILIPPINES: The Montagnards, the fiercely independent tribesmen of Vietnam’s Central Highlands who fought the communists in the jungles of Cambodia and Vietnam, recently decided to abandon their struggle and seek new lives in the U.S. In this April, 1969 photo, a Montagnard tribesman heads for his guard post at Tieu-Altar, South Vietnam with his baby strapped to his back. Sept 1 1986”
For a limited time I’m having an across the board sale on all my novels, this will be the only one in 2021. From now through the rest of April all the e-versions of my books are only 99 cents each! Available for Kindle, Nook, and Apple!
My first three novels Joshua, Traveler, and Tribes are apocalyptic stories about everyday people and what happens to them, and a nation, when the value of its money is intentionally destroyed.
Both Joshua and Traveler have been best sellers on Amazon (Action & Adventure category) and although there are three in the series each novel can be read independently from the others. Each book is a self-contained story and features completely new characters. Tribes is the prequel to the first two books.
If you’re looking for something more lighthearted, and different, I would recommend my latest novel, Bright Days and Dark, an alternate history tale set in the 1970s entertainment industry. As the title would suggest there’s some laughs and some tears, and again, probably unlike anything you’ve ever read.

“FIVE JAPS TO HIS CREDIT – PHILIPPINES — Probably the youngest and proudest guerilla fighter in the Philippines, Ponciano “Sabu” Arida of Santo Maria, Laguna Province, Luzon, has five dead Japs to his credit. The eleven-year-old patriot, who fought the Japs throughout the three-year enemy occupation of the islands, is now working with a unit of the 43rd Division. — ARMY RADIO TELEPHOTO 4/19/45”
“NOT TO BE PUBLISHED PRIOR TO SUNDAY, APRIL 16 1944 – MARINE DEVIL DOGS – Once again dogs are proving to be man’s best friend. They are taking part in the war in the Southwest Pacific and have proven themselves to be heroes under all circumstances. The dog platoon at Bougainville was the first full platoon of dogs to be used in combat by any of our armed forces during this war. These canines are enlisted in the Marine Corps in the Marine Devil Dogs and are given several months of grueling training under simulated battle conditions. This schooling, they put to good use when in actual combat. They live, as Marines do, in foxholes, in jungles and on limited rations, and like all true Marines, fall to their task with great eagerness. Several of the dogs have been commended by the Marine Corps Commandant for their outstanding work in combat.
NIPPED BY A NIP — Jack, a three year old Belgian Shepherd, was donated for war service to the Marine Corps by his owner Joseph Verhseghe, Floral Park, New York, and has been commended by the Commandant of the Marine Corps for “outstanding performance against the enemy” while on Bougainville. Jack was in the line of duty carrying a message back from the company on a road block, and was wounded in the back by a Jap sniper. Even though wounded he carried the message through. He is pictured here with one of his handlers, Private First Class Finley, Elmira, New York. — Photographer PFC P. Scheer”
It’s been months since my last update. The big news is I finally personally know someone who got it, actually 14 “someones.” In my work area about a month ago 14 people (out of 23) got it within 2 weeks of each other. They must have contracted it in one of the common areas, although they never could determine where. All I know is that I didn’t get it, or at least never showed any symptoms. All but one were back at work within 2-3 weeks and most were actually only sick a few days (they couldn’t come back until they tested negative). In the one bad case the guy was hospitalized for a couple weeks with blood clots in his legs, but he is also fine now and expected back anytime.
My state is still under mask lockdown and I’m still not using one. I’ve been asked to leave stores only twice; mostly they don’t seem to care. Mind you, I do all my shopping now at small “Mom & Pop” shops. It’s my understanding that the larger corporate owned places like Walmart are quite fanatical about their masks. I wouldn’t know since it’s been almost a year since I put a foot in one, when they first started their slaughterhouse routine.
I don’t know if there will be any more updates, I’m getting pretty tired of talking about this bullshit. We’ve done a lot of irreparable damage to this nation over a virus that has a 99%+ survival rate, and we’ve only just begun to feel the consequences of this insanity. Okay, America, get ready to get smacked with the clue bat, because it’s coming.
