AW Schade, Sr
Marine, Vietnam Veteran, Bank Manager, and over 30 successful years in corporate executive marketing, business development, operations and sales. Married, father of three sons, and grandfather to a granddaughter and three grandsons. I graduated from Syracuse University with a degree in Business Management. I wrote my first book; “Stop, before you lose your time, money and/or reputation” (in the wrong internet business) in 2002. Please be forewarned, it needs considerable revision, that maybe one day I will get to.
My second book is the award winning, "Looking for God within the Kingdom of Religious Confusion," revised in 2010. An intriguing and educational ‘creative non-fictional' story of one man’s journey to find the truth about God. Passing through the mystical 'Gates of Abraham', he engages believers along the divergent roads of Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Secular and Spirituality beliefs.
I have also written a few short stories, the most prominent to-date being “The Demons of War are Persistent.” A personal story, located on this site for comments and dialogue, of prolonged PTSD. Written to help veterans and families break the stigma of PTSD and seek help, instead of falling into the abyss of destitution or suicide. Other poems, short stories, articles, etc., will be added to this site on an ongoing basis.
