Chuck Dean is the author of numerous books varying in style and theme. He served as a U.S. Army paratrooper during the Vietnam War, and through that experience was led to write his first several books addressing the transitional issues veterans struggle with when coming home from a war zone. His first book published in 1987, “Nam Vet: Making Peace with Your Past”—with over two million in print—continues to help Veterans with readjustment issues. His latest, “Some Came Home: A Story of Returning”, is an impacting fictional portrayal of many of those issues. His recent books, “Midnight Train from Moscow” and “Ji Feng” are romantic reads that every reader should experience.
In 2008 Chuck was the recipient of the prestigious Hirsch Foundation Leadership Award for his writing and work with veterans and active military. Today he writes a regular column for The Vegas Voice newspaper entitled “Vet 2 Vet”, and continues to contribute to the veteran community through his writing. Today he lives with his wife Renee in both Las Vegas, Nevada and Nanning, China.
