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.

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.
The second edition of Just Dust is due out soon (probably around Thanksgiving). There have been some photographs added, some typos fixed, and two minor historical errors corrected …plus a revised front and back cover. I’ve also added an explanation for something that had been inadvertently omitted.
BUT SOME NEW NEWS!
With this second edition, from each book sale we are arranging for a donation to the Fisher House. As some folks probably have already heard, the Fisher House (lookup their website at http://www.fisherhouse.org) is a place where relatives of hospitalized veterans can stay—an especially useful place when veterans have operations or extended hospital stays. The Fisher House in Tucson is already under construction. Look for more details about Fisher House in the near future.
