John served in Vietnam during 1970 and 1971 as an infantryman with both the Wolfhounds of the 25th Division and the 501st Infantry Brigade of the 101st Airborne Division. He was awarded the Combat Infantry Badge, Bronze Star, two Air Medals, and a Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry. He has spent the years since Vietnam working in various management positions within the automotive industry and has recently received a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration. John is a member of Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 154 and lives with his wife, Janice, in Sterling Heights, Michigan. They own a 1997 Harley Davidson Heritage and are both members of the Great Lakes Chapter of South East Michigan Harley Owner’s Group. Both retired in 2013 and enjoy not working anymore. John has authored and published two books on Smashwords: "Cherries - A Vietnam War Novel" and "When Can I Stop Running?"
In 'When Can I Stop Running?' the author juxtaposes his nightmarish hours when he and a buddy shared a Listening Post ('LP') in the Vietnam jungle with some of his most heart-pounding childhood escapades. Readers will relate to the humorous childish antics with amusement; military veterans will find themselves relating to both of the entertaining and compelling recollections.
Jason Matthews offers a world of advice in his book and then guides you with step-by-step instructions on how to implement his suggestions. I have found it to be a valuable resource and have followed his guidance to develop a blog/website to introduce and market my new e-book, which will be uploaded at the end of this month. I recommend this to anyone who is looking for additional insight and guidance in marketing your work.
