I was drafted after graduating from Edinboro in 1966. I taught school in Meadville and North Carolina for 40 years. I wrote a course on Vietnam called “To Teach a Nation,” and I formed the Bridge Back Foundation. The course is now in over 3000 schools nationwide. I also have an electronic library to be used for research on the Vietnam story. Go NCVVI.org

I have been back to Nam five times, building playgrounds and taking vets back. Check it out also at NCVVI.org. I have retired to Neville Island with my wife of 52 years.
