Future Release


Back in June of 1967, in the middle of South Vietnam's monsoon, the 1st Infantry Division decided to enter into the infamous "War Zone D" about 35 miles north of Saigon. This was an area that the battle harden 271st VC Regiment controlled. It was a triple canopy forested refuge that had been a haven for the Viet Cong for most of the war. It was riddled with tunnels storing large quantities of military, medical and food supplies. It was a very strategic stronghold for the VC.

On June 17th I would experience my biggest battle of my military career there in "War Zone D." I came out alive, but many did not. My new book is about that experience and the men in arms that I fought alongside.

About David Hearne

David James Hearne was born in Bellows Falls Vermont the second child of James and Theresa Hearne. Parts of his childhood were spent in Charlestown, New Hampshire, where his parents maintained a family home. The rest of the time David's family led the itinerant life of army dependents accompanying James Hearne, an army officer, to the various military installations he was assigned to. David's life of moving from one military installation to another, offered him a broader view of the world then was available from his idyllic hometown of Charlestown, New Hampshire.
His father's military assignments introduced him to diverse cultures and views as he adapted to life in places like Blackstone, Virginia, Washington D.C., Leesville, LA., Wrightstown, N.J., Tirrenia, Italy and Charlestown, N.H.. A principle lesson he l earned at an early age from his frequent moves from the north to the south was that social truths are simply beliefs unchallenged and pragmatic to those who espouse them. He came to recognize how easily views are shaped and forged into irrefutable truths by your peers, authority figures, and vocal vacuous celebrities. This exposure to the divisiveness of often-opposing views from one locale to the other taught him the need of a good command of history to help analyze and make conclusions in social matters that are so subjective.

He has had many life experiences that have helped shape his views of the world. He has been an Army Officer and seen death many times. He has lost both his parents and an older sister to cancer. Beside being in the military, he has experienced various other careers including selling insurance, being a general contractor, managing a restaurant, running a car rental agency, being a software programmer and running his own consulting company.

In the 1990's after David published the book "Enable Command Performance" he spent many months on the seminar circuit appearing in most of the major cities. In San Diego, his 1991 seminar coincided with the 6-day period of rioting and murder of 54 people triggered by part of the aftermath of the arrest of Rodney King in Los Angeles, Ca. He experienced a first hand glimpse of violent rioting and felt the societal pressure to express his feelings in only the politically correct vernacular of the media.

David enjoys reading and new adventures in life. He still loves to travel and view the world with his own eyes and form his own conclusions on the events and happenings of the world he lives in.

David is happily married to his inspiring wife, Stacie. They have a three chirldren, Scott, Alex and Lyndsey and a bunch of cats. Currently they live in the town of Lumberton, Texas, at their beautiful Bed and Breakfast Inn, Book Nook Inn.
