About the Book
My first memoir, Reflections in an Orphan’s Eye, A Decade at Oxford 1947-1957, was published in 2005. This second memoir picks up my story as I enter Berry College in 1957, and covers my nearly four and a half years between graduation from college in May 1961 and my honorable discharge from the U.S. Army on November 4, 1965. An Epilogue to this book covers my life from my discharge from the army until the present.
I have led an interesting and productive life. If I had my life to live over again, I would not change it even one iota.
