Nightmares by Paul Kasper

Paul Kasper is the author of Nightmares, a historical autobiography that delves into the tribulations soldiers have gone through during the Vietnam war. Mentally and physically exhausted, the 9th Infantry Division had to weather through many hardships and losses as they press their way through the battlefield. However, unknown to many of them, their suffering would continue even after the war, having been exposed to Agent Orange, a blanket term for 15 chemicals used as a defoliant. Many of them succumbed to many illnesses such as various cancers, diabetes and more.

Kasper had taken on various jobs, including being a policeman, a forest fire fighter, soldier (with a tour in Vietnam from 1967 to 1968), and a Disaster Specialist for the Red Cross. He was also a motorcycle racer, auto racer, a business owner of a large garage and parts store, and many more occupations.

He is also a lifetime member of The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the U.S., Vietnam Veterans of America and Disabled American Veterans Charity. He has won poetry awards and has written a song with a friend. He was a member of various state committees and is considered an authority when it comes to veterans agenda.

Paul is a father to several children, now all grown up. One of them serves in the U.S. Army.
