Charles Edgren
Nam Vet is an intensely personal book in which Dean bares his life and soul. Because of that, it is one of the more practical, helpful and timely books to hit the shelves in the past few years.

Meet the Author

Chuck Dean was one of the first three hundred paratroopers to be deployed to the Vietnam War in 1965. Since coming home he has worked with thousands of soldiers and veterans in the U.S. and across the globe-including Russia, Italy, and France helping them find positive solutions to the many difficult issues of returning home after combat duty.
In the spring of 2004, Chuck was invited by the U.S. Army to assist the paratroopers of the 173d Airborne Brigade in their re-adjustment after combat in Iraq. His focus while at their re-deployment base camp in Vicenza, Italy was to help the troops reintegrate with their loved ones, and readjust to peacetime conditions after prolonged combat exposure in Northern Iraq. The 173d is the same unit Chuck served with as a young paratrooper in Vietnam. In 2008 he was the recipient of the Didi Hirsch Foundation Leadership Award for his writing and work to help veterans with readjustment issues.
He lives in Las Vegas, Nevada, and is the author of several books on recovery issues, including best-selling "Nam Vet: Making Peace with Your Past" and "Down Range to Iraq and Back". He is currently a columnist for The Vegas Voice Newspaper.
