Behind My Wings
Behind My Wings
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 motivated me to write my memoirs of Vietnam and to tell the stories of our military and their private battles. As an eyewitness to history, I bring to light the stories of forgotten vets.
Love affaires with soldiers on layovers tempered the heaviness and sadness I felt at that time. As our lives intersected, each soldier we left in Vietnam made an indelible imprint on my life and the lives of other stewardesses.

I am just starting the book. My husband snatched it away from me when it arrived. He was so excited about the read, he kept trying to tell me everything he was reading. I finally had to tell him to stop so I can read it myself. He really enjoyed it. He was there in 65 or 66? Tell BJ good job!!!"
"Great description BJ that is where I was stationed on a gunboat. The only good part of DaNang was the White Elephant and China Beach."
"I couldn't put it down. Russ and I both enjoyed the book. It really gave us an appreciation for what our troops had to go through."
Dear Flying Angel BJ,
Thank you for just a powerful story about myself. It really hit a home run..
We all cried. It took a while to get through it. As you know telling people about Nam can never be the same as being there. As we landed in Nam we were on the ground, small arms fire, ran to the terminal floor which we laid there for two hours. Welcome to Nam.
The scars of my memory never go away.
Thank you BJ for taking the time and effort to write about my Vietnam experience. After telling my Vietnam story , it brought healing and restoration not only for me, but also for my family. I am blessed to have such an awesome wife who has supported me through everything. To my children whom I love dearly, thanks for loving your dad as much as you do. It has meant the world to me. To my precious and strong grandchildren, loving you is a legacy that I cherish now and eternally.
