Roy Lee “Simon” Jarmon was the second of eleven children, born in the Mississippi Delta to the late George and Minnie Bell Armstrong Jarmon. Having served in Vietnam, he was diagnosed with PTSD in 2004. As part of his recovery, his therapist suggested that he write about his experiences. Roy had always love poetry and writing in his earlier years and his journaling has lead to this – his second book of poetry and prose. He still lives in Piscataway, NJ with his second wife, Audrey, whom he married November 7, 2009. His first wife, Nathalyn Vershelle Cato, of whom this book is dedicated, died from breast cancer in 2005.
