Author Query: Friendship in the War Zone

Skip Nelson (above, in Vietnam in 1968) , a Vietnam veteran and accomplished photographer, is putting together a book titled A Candle in the Darkness . The heart of the book, Nelson says, will be “photos and stories submitted by veterans documenting people who brought some sense of friendship or sanity during their time in Vietnam.”

To that end, Nelson would like to hear from Vietnam veterans with photos documenting moments of friendship and sanity. The plan is to include them in the book along with “very short stories about the people in the photos.”

Nelson says he will  “choose the best 48 photos and stories. We hope to get a good mix of stories from all three sides: U.S., South Vietnamese and North Vietnamese.”

To find out more about the project and to contact Skip Nelson, go to the web site he has set up for the book:
