About the Book

This is my true story about how a young man turned his emotional and learning disabilities that cast him as a failure in society into natural advantages. He overcame one challenge after another in his quest to fulfill his dream to fly. At the age of 17 he earned his Private Pilots Certificate, at 18 his Commercial and at 19 he becomes one of the Army’s youngest helicopter aircraft commanders in Vietnam. He endures the horrors of war and returns home, now much older than his 20 years. He continues his love of flight as a civilian. After years of flight, his past comes back to haunt him. He now must face his greatest challenges yet: Cancer brought on by Agent Orange and PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). The FAA grounds him. Is there one more fight left in him, “for the love of flight?"
