We are pleased to announce that as an exclusive launch event for Allen B. Clark’s new book, Valor in Vietnam, The World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth will be sponsoring a breakfast and book signing tomorrow at 9:30 a.m. at the Melrose Hotel in Uptown Dallas.
Veterans may make a reservation for the breakfast at a $15 cost by calling Rachel Vogel at 214-965-8411. Spouses or special guests of veterans may be registered by indicating to Rachel that they are Allen’s guests and the charge will only be $20 combined for the breakfast. Allen will have his book available to sign for $25 and several individuals described in the book will be available to sign their chapters and discuss their Vietnam War stories.
Valor in Vietnam is the product of years of interviews and research by Allen Clark, himself a Vietnam vet and author of the renowned Wounded Soldier, Healing Warrior.
With a Foreword by Lt. General (ret.) Dave R. Palmer, former Superintendent of West Point, the book consists of tales of extraordinary drama and heroism that occurred throughout America’s experience in Vietnam by soldiers, airmen, marines and sailors.
Stories in the nineteen chapters run the gamut from Nam Dong Special Forces camp in the Central Highlands in 1963 through possibly the first accurate picture of how the war began with the 1964 Gulf of Tonkin Incident through the super-secret Studies and Observation Group cross-beach raiding parties. These attacks in North Vietnam kicked off the entire next eleven years for our warriors.
Anyone who served in Southeast Asia, knows someone who did, or is curious about the war through the eyes of many of its notable combatants will not want to miss the breakfast and the book. It is truly a highly personalized approach to knowing about Vietnam.
Not able to make it to the book signing? Stay tuned for the official release of Valor in Vietnam on July 24th!
