About the Author

Richmond (Rick) Pratt was born in Rhode Island and moved to Florida at the age of five. He graduated from Palm Beach Junior College and did the hippie hitchhiking thing around the country before going into Navy engineman school, where he learned how to work on diesel engines. He was in Vietnam for ten months until October 1971, stationed on a YW (Yard Water) boat (clean water was as important as ammunition for the war). And yes, he did indeed enjoy liberty call in Saigon. Returning stateside, Rick worked on engines at a large air-conditioning plant, then became a carpenter and a metal-plater. During lunch time at work, he'd write down the stories he could remember from Vietnam, leading to Liberty Call. Rick is an accomplished potter and also spins a good tale.
