Jim Hawn, who served in the Marine Corps for 29 years and retired in 2000, has completed his new book “Watching Over Her”: an inspiring tale about friendship and loss, personal and professional empowerment, and a love so strong that nothing could destroy it.
According to Hawn, “(I) served more than 29 years in the Marine Corps, retiring as a Master Gunnery Sergeant in 2000. (My) tours of duty included assignments as a Drill Instructor, Marine Security Guard Detachment Commander, and Aviation Operations Chief. Entering the Corps as a high school dropout, (I) attended school during (my) off-duty hours, eventually attaining a Master’s Degree in History from Old Dominion University. After retirement in 2000, (I) served as an academic advisor for Campbell University’s Extended Campus in Raleigh and Fort Bragg, NC, where (I) helped students plan their college studies, and taught history classes on the Civil War and Africa Area Studies. In 2005, (I) returned to serving Marines on several training contracts, ultimately serving as Program Manager for the Advisor Training Program, a program that provided pre-deployment training for Marine Corps Advisor Teams destined for Iraq and Afghanistan. When those contracts ended, (I) returned to academia and currently teach as a History Adjunct Instructor. (I) maintain (my) connection with the Marine Corps and veteran communities, serving on the board as Chairman Emeritus of the Central Florida Marine Corps Foundation, as a member of the Marine Corps League, and as a member of the board of Home At Last, a charitable organization that builds homes for wounded veterans of the recent Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts. I reside in Central Florida with my wife Sandra.”
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Hawn’s romantic work begins in the summer of 1970, when Jim and Jennifer met and fell in love in a summer romance, convinced that they were soul mates.
Their love rapidly grew, each seeing something in the other that convinced them they belonged together. Both had plans for college in the fall, Jim returning as an aspiring Marine Corps officer candidate for his senior year, and Jen entering school as a college freshman. But their relationship was broken up by family dynamics that drove them apart. Jen’s parents interfered to keep them apart and Jim believed Jen wanted nothing to do with him.
Unknown to either one at summer’s end, they had created a child, and when Jen and her parents tried to let Jim know, his stepfather reported that Jim was dead. As the years passed, Jen’s daughter Heather believed her mother’s words that her father was in heaven watching over her. And so, Jim and Jenifer lived their lives, each maturing and growing professionally, yet still tied together in a way they could not understand. Jen’s soothing words to her daughter were truer than either could know. “Watching Over Her” is a story about friendship and loss, personal and professional empowerment, and a love so strong that nothing could destroy it.
