About the Author

Jack Estes served in Vietnam in 1968/69 during the bloodiest time of the war. He received critical acclaim for his first book, the Vietnam memoir," A Field of Innocence". Tim O'Brien, author of "The Things They Carried" said, "With it's raw realism and heartbreaking honesty...One of the finest Vietnam memoirs."
Karl Marlantes, author of the New York Times best selling, Vietnam novel, Matterhorn, said this about Jack Estes' new novel, "A Soldier's Son." "All veterans and their loved ones should read this story of a father's love, loss, and personal courage, both at home and at war."

Over the years Mr. Estes has also published articles and essays in Newsweek, LA Times, Chicago Tribune, The Oregonian and Wall Street Journal, on Memorial Day, 2016.

Mr. Estes and his wife Colleen O'Callaghan are the founders of Fallen Warriors Foundation and have traveled to Vietnam on missions of mercy, delivering medical goods, books and toys to the village he once lived in. Jack also took a group of disabled Vietnam veterans back to Vietnam to their original point of pain for healing and he took doctors and nurses, on another occasion to work with the poorest of the poor.

Fallen Warriors has held meditation retreats for almost 20 years, for veterans and their loved ones.
They have held events at high schools and colleges and community gatherings. The work of Jack and Colleen is to honor the memories of American soldiers and help heal the pain of war.
