Charles W. “Chuck” Newhall, III presents Fearful Odds: A Memoir of Vietnam and Its Aftermath
5:00 p.m. Reception | 6:00 p.m. Presentation | 7:00 p.m. Book Signing
Fearful Odds is the true story of a young Army officer groomed for command and assigned to lead a platoon on a reconnaissance mission in Vietnam. An otherwise routine mission is complicated by the contradiction of an inept chain of command and the resulting casualties devastate the platoon. The graphic images and memories of the action and the grueling months that follow led Chuck Newhall to a lifetime of severe trauma, guilt, grief, and anger. After decades of experience in managing the long-term effects of trauma, and with the support of his family, Newhall has successfully come to terms with his past and the effects of PTSD. Fearful Odds offers hope, inspiration, and valuable coping tools for anyone, or their families, who has been affected by post-traumatic stress, depression, mild traumatic brain disorder, or the suicide of a loved one.
Charles W. “Chuck” Newhall, III is a decorated combat veteran of Vietnam who served with the 1st Battalion, 327th Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division in the A Shau Valley where he earned the Silver Star, the Bronze Star with V(1st OLC), and a Purple Heart. Now an accomplished venture capitalist, Fearful Odds is his first book.
