Russell Pyle, a Vietnam veteran and Tennessee native currently living near Nashville, where he works as an artist’s model, musician, and writer, has completed his new book “Vet’s Reflections on Life”: a deeply personal articulation of the author’s deepest insight and emotion in the years following his military service.

After the Vietnam War, Russell lived in Everett, Washington, having spent the end of his enlistment in Bremerton shipyard across the water from Seattle in Puget Sound. After attending college and settling in civilian life after six years Navy time, it became necessary to return home. Social stigma after Vietnam and finances left a choice of leaning on friends or a return to home to start over at the age of twenty-seven. The return to Nashville helped keep the thread of music and writing alive. Finding adapting to civilian life and work lonely and difficult, he began retreating mentally and emotionally into himself and began writing down thoughts, beginning with a letter to a friend left behind. Typical of letters not mailed and thoughts unsaid, these were collected over the years reflecting on deeper meaning of life experiences, viewpoints of the past, searching identity, and meaning of the present, as each page was recorded anticipation and remembrance, highs and lows of life. Collected by his wife, Suzanne, for family, sister, and Indian friend and mentor, in a volume for the holidays one year. This book is the narrative of those collected thoughts.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Russell Pyle’s engrossing book is a richly emotive and lyrical expression of the author’s deepest reflections on his life and the human experience.

Readers who wish to experience this thought-provoking work can purchase “Vet’s Reflections on Life” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
