Well I finally finished a story. One of the writers I edit for kept pushing me to get back to writing, thanks Wayne.
I had this story basically done, but couldn't decide on an ending. It took about an hour to find one.
The Backcourt Blues is like a do-over for me. I was a flight medic in Germany during Vietnam. Had I been one class earlier or later at Ft. Sam, I would have gone into combat. Mark Reynolds is the guy I might have been then. There will be more stories in the series following other turning points in my life.
