About the Book:
PFC Phil Ferrazano's heartbreaking tale of courage and redemption happened, not in the jungles of Vietnam, but in the States twenty years after the war ended.
In 1988, Phil Ferrazano's visit to the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial to honor his comrades of the 9th Infantry Division triggered a flood of repressed emotions and PTSD with devastating results.
He would spend the next ten years confronting his own anger, guilt, and grief, while battling the VA for the compensation and recognition he deserved.
During his journey, he would endure uncaring doctors, inscrutable rules, haphazard medical treatment, and share the despair that drove many of his fellow veterans to suicide.
Phil Ferrazano's story is a testimony to the dauntless spirit and perseverance of all of America's veterans.
I am proud to have been with Phil when he received his Bronze Star. It was so refreshing to see the young men and women of that National Guard unit come up and congratulate him, and salute him, on something done 30 years prior." ~Walter E. Patt Jr.
