This is Michael King, the often heard of, but never heard from husband of Nona King. So, after some discussion we have decided that now would be a good time for me to participate in her years long endeavor with this blog. So, as with all newly arrived participants, an introduction is in order. So, onward with a bit about myself.
I am a hybrid, being both Vietnamese and American (yellow and white for the color inclined). I’m a war baby and was born in Vietnam during the war. Hmmm, does that make me a Vietnam war veteran? Speaking of veterans, I am one. I proudly served as an airborne infantryman with the 82nd Airborne Division in the 1990s. I intentionally state the 1990s so that people don’t presume I’ve been involved with our near past and current conflicts in the Middle East. I’m not a combat veteran and I won’t steal that valor. So, you’ll never hear me talking about being an airborne ranger delta force seal who did super top secret missions in Mozambiqestan, Manastan or Canastan. I’m very proud that I was airborne infantry, I’m very proud of serving with the 82nd and I don’t need to steal any valor to feel good about that.
Now, as for my writing experience (rumor has it that this is a writer’s blog, weird), I’ve started many novels, completed several screen plays, filmed one of them and have been writing for entertainment since I was in junior high. In fact, in junior high, I was the only kid who was in the library club and on the football team; a jock who liked to read, super weird.
As for my blogging style, well, I like things to be interactive. I love to coach, advise, read and share my life with people who show an interest. So, if you have any questions or curiosities, please ask, send a message write a comment or throw a message in a bottle and toss it in the ocean. Please bear in mind that if you choose the latter option I can’t guarantee a prompt response.
Peace be the Journey,
