John Henry Hardy served more than thirty three years in the US Marine Corps, first as an artilleryman and than a military policeman. At the end of his first stint, he worked full time as a technician for AT&T while attending night school at Rutgers University, and in less than five years was awarded a bachelor's degree in Psychology. In 1983 he earned a master's degree in Business Management at the University of Phoenix, in Phoenix, Arizona. One of his stories earned him the George Washington Honor Medal by Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge, and for another press release he was awarded the Freedoms Foundation Honor Certificate. "I have always wanted to be a writer, even in grammar school and was encouraged by my teachers to do so. Shortly after graduation from high school I wrote my first novel entitled, "The Phantom Fighters" that went unpublished, since I had joined the Marine Corps." While I was in college, the Vietnam war was raging and I was able to observe many of the antiwar demonstrations first hand. Many of them were nothing but love fests and I heard the speakers spewing remarks about the American war effort and our soldiers that I knew were mostly lies. The returning veterans were treated horribly by the young and foolish demonstrators. I reenlisted in the Marine Corps Reserve in 1972, but was recalled to active duty in 1994 and remained in the Corps until I was forced to retire because of age. While caring for my ill wife for a number of years I tried my hand at writing again, and in July 2015 CreateSpace, an Amazon company, published my epic novel, "Whisper In My Ear", a love story that depicts the actual events of the war from the perspective of the men and women who fought there. The four main characters are fictitious, but they are typical of all of our Vietnam veterans, and the meticulously researched historical facts of the war and the Vietnamese culture are all true!
