About the Author

Upon returning from Vietnam in 1968, Lt. Dan Moore vowed to someday tell the story of a fallen Marine, a best friend. Moore had served in Vietnam as an artillery forward observer and battery executive officer. While staying with the Marine reserves, he earned a doctorate in history from the University of Pennsylvania and made the CIA his career.
Following retirement in 2014, he finally began to research the life of Steve Joyner. Moore would interview more than 100 of Steve's friends and colleagues, from youth to college to the Marine Corps. The results are a fascinating story of a young Marine officer who pushed himself to the front lines of life and death. "The Joyner story, in part," writes Moore, "is a symbolic tribute to the Vietnam generation of servicemen and women who, without wavering, offered - and sometimes gave - their lives for their country.
