Fearful Odds: A Memoir of Vietnam and its Aftermath
March 24, 2016
***NEW START TIME! 7PM
7pm - 8pm
At St. Regis Deer Valley's Deer Crest Club
Newhall is not the scruffy, homeless, stereotyped Vietnam vet suffering PTSD. He is, in some ways, more typical of the majority of veterans with PTSD who have struggled to keep their lives on track in the years since they came home from the jungles. The National Institutes of Health believes nearly a third of Vietnam veterans suffer from PTSD. Of the nearly 2.6 million who served in Vietnam, about 1.5 million experienced actual combat. The PTSD rate among combat veterans is higher. Newhall experienced the full horrors of Vietnam.
Join us for a reading of Fearful Odds, book sales and a cocktail party afterward for people to talk to Chuck further.
