Richard Jellerson, former Vietnam Helicopter pilot and documentary filmmaker (“A Solemn Promise, America’s Missing in Action” and “A Personal Experience, Helicopter Warfare in Vietnam”) has just released his new book – “The Healing, Pan American Flight 001”.
Following two tours of duty in Vietnam as an Army helicopter pilot, Richard had lost touch with humanity. He didn’t want to return home to a country divided by that same war. So, he spent a year seeking to, once again, find meaning and solace in his life. To his surprise through interaction with total strangers in foreign lands he began healing deep psychic wounds he didn’t realize he had.
The Healing is a great book for all who have experienced war and found the return home difficult. But even more importantly, it will be particularly helpful for those whose loved ones have experienced war and returned changed. This book will perhaps begin building a better understanding by learning how one such “healing” took place.
