Description

A physically and mentally wounded Vietnam veteran is thrust back into the civilian life and into the dynamic changes of the investment industry of the 1970s and 80s. In Vietnam, he flew for the 101st Airborne Division. Now Lt. Phil Johnson awakens in a hospital bed, disoriented and in terrible pain. Wounded in mind and body, he faces a long road to recovery, facing PTSD and a potentially devastating physical loss. But the trauma of his combat experiences barely scratch the surface of what lies ahead. He discovers his college education and military experience amount to zilch in the job market he faces. His painful introversion works against him in the dynamic post war world which seems in conflict with his personality and beliefs. When one of the richest men in the world gives him a job it is total surprise. To succeed, he will need to learn new skills and adapt to massive changes in society. Difficulties await him as old habits and past events return to haunt him. He must summon up the courage that served him well in Vietnam to overcome the challenges of the financial world, and to make a decision that could change his life forever.show more
