Author Dan Rodgers was in college taking pre-med, had a possible professional baseball career in the offing, and was driving race cars hoping to get on the NASCAR circuit when he received his dreaded draft notice. Two days before he married his lovely wife, Sue, Dan was drafted into the Army. The author and a few friends were sent to Vietnam on the adventure of a lifetime. Dan was a squad leader and sergeant in the Vietnam War and was directly involved in the Tet Offensive in 1968. At one point during Tet, his company lost 126 men in less than two hours. Dan earned the Silver Star when he and a comrade rescued five soldiers trapped in an armored tank. He was wounded twice and received two Purple Hearts. At one point, Dan was asked to become a war correspondent and carry a mini camera. He kept notes on whatever paper he could find to write on, but writing the names of dead comrades was tough. Dan lives with the pain of losing his personal friends. His wife is a testament to his nightly torment, as he still suffers with nightmares and flashbacks of the war. Writing this book started as an exercise to relieve stress. Dan would present his writings to doctors, who in turn suggested that he form a chronological order of events. The book Call Me Sergeant Rock was born. Today, Dan Rodgers lives near Houston and is a writer as well as a race car and jet boat driver. His passions are writing and speed.
