by BWW News Desk - Oct 18, 2016

PORTLAND, Ore., Oct. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ Masterfully crafted by Jack Estes, 'A Soldier's Son' calls on the author's own experiences in Vietnam to tell the gut-wrenching story of a PTSD-riddled veteran, who breaks to the core of his being when his son is sent to the war in Iraq.
