Tears of a Warrior: A Family’s Story of Combat and Living with PTSD has been our life’s journey for the past thirty-some years. We began writing our story several years back simply as a legacy for our two sons. But, with the Iraq war and soldiers returning from combat, we realized that there are many others who have lived or are now living our experience as well. Some certainly have an even more traumatic story than ours.
Tony Seahorn is a Vietnam Vet and was a guest at our Colorado reunion. At the reunion he introduced us to this very well written book that I recomend to all vets and family members of vets. From it they will understand more.

James (Jim) Davis Nelson served in Vietnam from 1967-68. He was a rifleman and machine gunner with the 2/22. He drew maps of enemy base camps and trench lines which the platoon Sergeant sent to headquarters. This led to an assignment as Brigade Draftsman and Brigade command track driver at headquarters. Later General Gleason saw one of his paintings and recommended to Division Headquarters that he become a combat artist with the 18th Military Historical Detachment at Cu Chi.
