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.

When asked why I am interested in painting the Vietnam War, I have three answers: First, because I was there. I witnessed scenes that are unique in the American experience and historically significant, thus deserving representation. Second, because within those American troops I had many good friends some of whom did not survive. Their bravery and sacrifice deserve representation in art and other medium for commemoration sake and for posterity. My third reason is to help repair the distorted image of that war and the American troops. I have consequently been concerned that my paintings be objective, depicting persons and events just as they actually were; neither glamorizing, nor —as television and the movies tend to do —demonizing them. I wanted it to be fairly said: “Yes, that’s the way it really was.”
