Authors, Writers, Publishers, and Book Readers

Doctors, Lawyers, Warriors and Thieves written by Dennis E. Hayes is an autobiography about his formative years of growing up in the fifties and sixties in the most violent city in America during the Race riots. It depicts the events of his life that influenced him to enlist in the United States Marine Corps along with others to serve their country in a time of an unpopular war. It reflects the many paths of men who served in Vietnam with their aspirations of becoming Doctors and Lawyers who instead became Warriors and Thieves. Its pretense is to show what happens to men of war and how they did not adapt to societies treatment of them when they returned home. They thought they might be heroes when they returned home but suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorders that no one would recognized and that changed them forever.

It is available at:

It can also be ordered on Barnes and Noble or Borders online bookstores.

Hope you enjoy the book.

Best wishes, Best of Life

Thank you Kay Elizabeth.
Actually it took 9 months to write some days I spent 6-10 hours on it, other only a few. With other things to do I rationed my time, but kept at the task. I spent many hours researching the history and time line of the events. I was surprised that I recalled things as well as I did, after 42 years, but many of those events were significant emotional impacts an what made me what I am today, so hard to forget many of them.
