About E.P. Moore

Born in New Jersey in July 1938 and raised in the tri state area, author E.P. Moore masterfully includes in the pages of Out of Da Nang the challenges of becoming a pilot in the Marine Corps as well as flying UH34D Sikorsky choppers under combat conditions in Viet Nam. Moore flew one tour of duty in Viet Nam and was awarded the DFC and Vietnamese Cross of Valor for a mission he participated in while flying out of Da Nang.

Following his tour in Viet Nam, Moore was transferred to NAS Pensacola in Florida to train student aviators for the Navy and U.S. Marine Corps. Completing that mission he used the skills the Marine Corps gave him to become a commercial pilot for Western Airlines (later Delta) where he flew for 31 years, retiring in 1998 as a captain on the 757/767. He has traveled the world, from the U.S. to Asia and all points in between.

Moore attended Wesley College in Dover, Delaware, before entering the Marines with full intentions of becoming a high school teacher and football coach before answering his call to fly for the Corps. Moore has been married for 36 years and has raised two sons and one daughter. He now resides in San Clemente, California, and hopes to raise funds for various veterans groups through sales of this book.

Chopper footage from the Vietnam War!
On YouTube there are countless clips of footage from the Vietnam War, and important event in our world's history. To the men and women who served in that war, this footage is more than just a clip or two. The videos reflect part of our lives. As a Marine Chopper Pilot, I saw things with my own eyes that you would not believe. I wrote Out of Da Nang to try to share some of my experiences with you.

I really enjoyed this book. It wasn't at all what I expected. It had a lot of romance included and the diary entries made the characters really come alive for me. This is not your typical Viet Nam war story. Not at all! And it has a twist. This American pilot was an American Indian!

This book surprised me. It isn't just about a Marine pilot in Viet Nam and what he faced there. In fact, it was a very personal story with heartfelt and sometimes romantic diary entries interwoven throughout. The ending will make you cry!! If you like a good romance that is approached in a completely different way, try this book. It's worth the $4.99!!! I enjoyed it thoroughly. I could tell that the author really tried hard to get his story across to the reader!!!
