Road to Vietnam Before and After, My Story
John Calabro, author
John was born October 23,1946 in the Hollow of Bridgeport , Ct. John loved to sing and have fun like the other Italian Americans there. When John turned twelve they moved to the North End of Bridgeport along with his brother and two sisters. Then along came two more brothers born in the North End. Being the second oldest of six children hindered his singing career as money was tight. After high school John joined the Navy as that was the best direction for him at that time. John spent four years in the Navy, and that’s what this story and book is about. As a young Naval Sailor, the author tells his story from the beginning of entering the Navy to the separation from active duty. Like most Americans back in 1964, I had known very little about Vietnam. This short synopsis is an attempt to fill in some of those details, from the induction into the Navy through the varied duty stations before Vietnam, during Vietnam and after.The details are a bit sketchy now, almost 53 years later. But then, we never could decide even on simple things like how to spell the name, could we? Variously written as, Da Nang, and Danang, The latter spelling for this story is the one used, since that was the name used by most of men over in "Danang" at that time. You will travel with John through Navy boot camp at the tender age of eighteen through his many experiences as he travels “ Road To Vietnam, Before And After, My Story” . This is a compelling true story of how it was and the facts seen through the eyes of John. There are many highlights of good times on leave and liberty. Then there are grief filled hours and days as his father dies while he is in Nam and his return to Vietnam. This gripping bio is an easy read because you will not want to put it down from beginning to end. Just like that old movie, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, well they are all part of his story.

About John Calabro

I’m a writer, and author with a difference: I write for every one of all ages who believe the world needs words with passion so people can pursue their craft and feel good about what they do. For me, success comes when my readers are as delighted with my work as I am. Praise like this affirms that I’m heading in the right direction:
I was the kid who grew up in the Hollow of Bridgeport who loved to sing and have fun like the other America Italians there. When I turned twelve we moved to the North End of Bridgeport along with my brother and two sisters. Then along came two more brothers born in the North End. Being the second oldest of six children hindered my singing career as money was tight. I went on to join the navy after high school and spent four years doing my duty to Uncle Sam and becoming a man. 
My path hasn’t always been clear and times were difficult, however I love people, and I treat people the way I would like to be treated. I enjoy, travel, music, and writing.
