Channel 9 – TV Interview

JUST DUST – Channel 9, KGUN TV Interview

This is a recording of the live interview on KGUN Channel 9 TV (Tucson) about the release of the Second Edition of Wes Choc’s book “Just Dust – An Improbable Marine’s Vietnam Story” that was published in December 2015. While the Second Edition incorporates a few important corrections, the most interesting addition is the new Forward contributed by businessman, David P. Reinhardt.

“Just Dust” – Second Edition Published with Forward by David Reinhardt

JUST DUST – New Forward by David Reinhardt

The second edition of “Just Dust” is now out!  In this edition is an inspiring new Forward written by David Reinhardt. His remarks have been particularly poignant inasmuch as he was able to capsulize the story in a few special words. For example, in his original communication with the author, Wes Choc, he compares Wes’s journey during Vietnam as being just like what Forrest Gump would have experienced … “but Forrest Gump was fiction!”

To quote David Reinhardt, “When you finish reading, you’ll find yourself wondering which is more improbable:  Wes Surviving the Marines, or the Marines surviving Wes.”

Find out why this was an improbable adventure for Wes Choc … and how nonfiction is often more intriguing than fiction.

Walter Rothwell – Military Services

Special Ceremony – Fort Huachuca, Arizona

As previously disclosed, Walter Rothwell passed away January 21, 2016.

Wally’s remains were cremated, and he will be laid to rest in the military cemetery in Fort Huachuca (near Sierra Vista), Arizona. Per his wishes, his ashes will be buried in his wife’s grave in a family ceremony at 12:30 this Friday, February 19th. The ceremony will be attended by a small contingent of U.S. Army soldiers in recognition of his military career for 22 years following World War II.

As Wally lived, Wally thus has passed away … graciously and inconspicuously. For those who knew him or who loved him, this will be a quiet farewell for a very interesting and special individual.
