Album Notes
In 1991 my first album "Vietnam Farewell" was produced and released. It was a healing album. We distributed, courtesy of The Boeing Company, free albums to 192 Vet Centers in the U.S., Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The creation and production of the album was a soul searching journey. Since then, I have performed at many Vet Centers and at the 10th Anniversary of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. On November 11, 1993 I participated in the dedication of the Vietnam Women's Memorial and the 5th Anniversary celebration in 1998. I was always "gung ho." I came from a military family. I was born in 1940, one year before WWII, shaped by that era. My dad served in the U.S. Marines in Peiping, China in 1926 when he was 24 years old. JFK was assassinated November 22, 1963. I was first married November 24, two days later. It was the age of Kennedy's Camelot. I volunteered to serve in Vietnam. I stepped on Vietnam soil on January 9, 1967, 27 years old, three children and a wife left behind, more prepared for death than for life. I never expected to make it home alive. I served in the Mekong Delta in 1967. Event after my 1967 tour I was still "gung ho." In a letter to John Paul Van (A Bright Shining Lie, Neil Sheehan, Random House, 1988) dated March 23, 1971, I volunteered for duty on his team back in the Delta. I said, "I have no desire to spend my tour in the administrative bureaucracy of Saigon." I ended up back in Vietnam at his headquarters in Pleiku, II Corps and later was medivaced. This album has been long in coming. To my Vietnam comrades I pray your ghosts and demons are gone forever. I again dedicate this album to you. My favorite piece of poetry is from T.S. Eliot "Burnt Norton" (1935): Footfalls echo in the memory. Down the passage which we did not take. Towards the door we never opened. Into the rose-garden.
