A War Veteran Must Choose: Try to Restore America's Values and Risk Being Branded a Domestic Terrorist or Do Nothing and Watch the Nation He Swore to Defend Surrender to Corruption

A Real-life war survivor shares the mind and heart of a veteran in a compelling novel of sacrifice and commitment.

BISMARCK, N.D., April 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- What would an unlikely hero risk to save America? Will he sit idly by while the nation slides a little further into chaos with each passing day? Or will he live up to the oath he took to defend the nation against all enemies, both foreign and domestic?  That's the tough dilemma the protagonist is about to face in Mike and Steve Little's Veterans Day.  

Jim Thurmond is an embittered Vietnam vet with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and a drinking problem the size of Texas. When Jim suffers a full-blown breakdown, he emerges with the realization that America's political, financial and legal systems have become hopelessly corrupt. Jim hasn't worn his country's uniform for decades but, like all vets, he never renounced his oath to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, both foreign and domestic.

Jim and a small group of fellow veterans of the super-secret Army Security Agency decide to take matters into their own hands. Like the Founding Fathers, they form a Committee of Safety, vigilantes dedicated to making sure that America's domestic enemies either change their ways or pay the ultimate price. Branded domestic terrorists, they rush to complete their mission before the full might of the FBI can stop them.

His mission to restore America's values forces Jim to confront his own demons. Will he continue to view the decline of America's greatness through an alcohol-induced fog or will he muster the courage to actually make a difference?

About the Author
Mike Little joined the U.S. Army in 1966 as a radio and communications specialist. The Vietnam War was raging at the time. In his first year in Viet Nam, he learned that the radio operators were often their first target in ambushes. He was almost killed by sniper fire, rockets, and mortar fire several times. He was slightly wounded by friendly fire once, but survived his two years in Vietnam getting shot at nearly every day. But he was no war hero; he was just doing the job he was trained to do. He was simply another spirit carrier. After he was discharged, he went to college where he studied design. After college, he worked as a draftsman and mechanical designer for the electronics, medical, and automotive industries.
