There were more than 100,000 homeless Vietnam veterans in the United States last year. Too often these hero's stories go untold or are over-shadowed by the disgrace of their “position” in the post-Vietnam War era.
Wayne Bryant is an author who knows the frustrations and humiliation these people faced. He has shared both their addictive, destructive lifestyles and heart-breaking stories as he traveled across America with many of them.
Bryant's debut fictional novel, The Last Train Home, is a heart-gripping recount of the life sacrifices one soldier makes both during war and when he returns home from active duty. In his book, Bryant poignantly illustrates how unseen forces can guide and enrich our lives even though it may appear all hope and purpose for living has gone.
Bryant's book is a timely journey past the obvious disgrace of homelessness to one of the possible stories behind the men who stood boldly as heroes on the frontline of a bloody war and dishonorably as hobos on the streets of America.
