Tom S Reply James Strauss on September 16, 2020 at 10:27 pm That was a really nice comment and timely to read; That ‘easy friendship’ bit deep. Thank you for the depth of those words. They reached me and I got that wonderful message. I am not easy, and I know it, but you made me think I am! Semper fi, Jim Reply Duke Charbonneau on September 16, 2020 at 4:19 pm Hi Jim Just watched your interview and was very impressed I learned a whole lot more about you and it was a pleasure to put a face on a friend that I’ve never met I served Aug. 66 – Aug 72 I’m always amazed how you answer every single message that is sent to you Keep up the great work Always waiting for your next chapter Stay safe & healthy Duke Duke Reply James Strauss on September 16, 2020 at 8:50 pm You are remarkable for putting down your feelings about what you watched in such a humane and meaningful fashion. Certainly reached me, and I wonder how many others. Thanks for the great comment, and yes, I am answering it like I have the 22,675 that have come before. I find it most curative and healing to be ‘involved’ with the vets like you on here. Thanks so much. Semper fi, Jim Reply Glenn Dyer on September 16, 2020 at 2:49 pm Jim, Appreciated you sharing your journey as writer and author. Thirty Days has September is above comparison. Applause was the only thing missing at the end of the interview.

No one can deny your depth as a human and a survivor. Reply James Strauss on September 16, 2020 at 2:38 pm Thanks so much Jim, as I am never sure what’s going to come out when I sit for one of those. Semper fi Jim Reply chuck bolam jr on September 16, 2020 at 12:28 pm Lt Col. Anthony B Herbert was the author of Soldier , I live five miles from where he grew up . Although I never had the privilege of meeting him , members of my extended family knew him and always believed him to be an honorable soldier and man . Reply James Strauss on September 16, 2020 at 2:34 pm Tony Herbert was the only man to ever read part of my original manuscript! We met in a bar, of all places. He told me that he would help me get it published but that If I did publish I would be forever known for being a Vietnam Vet and a very controversial one at the time, when racial tensions were so high. I would have to take a lot of stuff out of it. I demurred and retired the first draft to my closet floor where it stayed. He was a great guy.
