At first he wonders why hes lying on his back and its raining on a sunny day. Then he realizes it isnt rain coming down, but human blood. Bloody Jungle Rain explores what happens to the reluctant Marine who was wounded in 1968. His brush with death brings Morrison to an operating room and a near-death experience that changes his life forever. The wounded Marine faces Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, depression, alcoholism and a broken marriage. Yet through his maze of problems there runs a thread of determination and the hope of finding a peaceful harbor. Sadly though, peace was difficult to find for many Vietnam veterans returning home to an unsympathetic public. This story about courage by Colorado native M.J. Earle was written to remember a childhood friend killed in Vietnam. The author says it proves that it is possible to overcome horrendous problems as long as there is faith and hope in the human heart.
