Overview

Life After Vietnam, When Chucky Comes Marching Home: Fighting with My Personal Demons by Col Chuck Sanders

A young man went off to answer his country's call. He had all the right thoughts, like God, corps, country, and mom. Good is good and wrong is bad. After his service in Vietnam, he learns that what we perceive as good is not always the way everyone else views it.

At a young age, he sees too much killing. Adapting to life as a warrior, he has become the enemy in order to defeat the enemy. He returns to the United States to discover everything changed. He no longer fits. His fiancée married someone else and his friends are all gone. His new best friend is the bottle.

Everyone and everything has changed except him; the world has moved forward but he is somehow stuck in the past. After Vietnam, his journey carries him through several divorces and failed relationships. He tries the biker life, which makes him feel like a warrior again, and is happy only when living on the edge. But this leads to prison, with the court system favoring the rich. The poor man does time, while the rich man walks free in the let's-make-a-deal legal system.

He has several bouts with alcoholism and drugs, is called to the ministry, and again turns to the bottle. It is the love of a beautiful Hawaiian/Chinese woman that saves him. Sober for many years now, he says it is due to this woman's love and the grace of God.

Colonel Chuck Sanders has published four books. He resides in Kurtistown, Hawaii, with his wife Maraia Kalani Sanders and his son Troy. He remains sober and counsels other veterans with addiction problems and PTSD.
