About Paul O'Connell

I was born and raised in Quincy, MA. At the age of 17 I was expelled from high school. I was a juvenile delinquent. I then had a brainstorm and was propelled by its winds in the direction of Parris Island to become a man. Just a few months after my 18th birthday, I was sent to Vietnam. I survived but brought home a head full of trauma. In 1990 I returned to Vietnam to see if I could find myself again. After my return, I began to write.

My desire is to share my journey with others through my writing, and to give life and honor to those I served with in Vietnam who no longer have a voice.

I have been married for more than 42 years. I have two children and two granddaughters.

I served the Quincy Fire Department for 32 years and retired in 2005 as the Chief of Department.

Peace

Tragic yet moving, this gives me even more insight into what our vietnam vets must have went through, and many still do.

Putting into words what my husband,himself a vietnam veteran,is unable to do. My children and I have never set foot in Vietnam but we lived with it every day.
