Welcome to Day 14 of the ’20 #RRBC WC&BE SPONSORS BLOG TOUR! @RRBC_Org @RRBC_RWISA @pdoggbiker @nonniejules
Hello, friends, and welcome to the 14th day of RRBC’S 2020 WC&BE SPONSORS BLOG TOUR! As you probably are aware by now, each year, the wonderful members of the club donate to this event to ensure that we are able to offer our $100 Amazon Gift Card Gift Basket raffle and we want to show them just how much we appreciate their kindness and generosity.
I am so honored to host one of my new favorites, Author, John Podlaski! What a talent he is! I’m so happy to share his book, “CHERRIES” with you today at WATCH NONNIE WRITE (although, we’ll be watching John write today!)
In 1970, John Kowalski is one of many young, naive teenage soldiers sent to Vietnam to fight in an unpopular war. Dubbed “Cherries” by their more seasoned peers, these newbies suddenly found themselves thrust into the middle of a terrible nightmare. On-the-job-training is intense, however, most of these teenagers were hardly ready to absorb the harsh mental, emotional, and physical stress of war. When coming under enemy fire and witnessing death first-hand, a life changing transition begins…one that can’t be reversed.
The author is an excellent story teller, readers testify that they’re right there with the characters, and joining them in their quest for survival; sharing the fear, awe, drama, and sorrow, witnessing bravery, and sometimes, even laughing at their humor.
“Cherries” tells it like it is and when finished, readers will have a much better understanding of what these young men had to endure for an entire year. It’s a story that is hard to put down.
