Author and Vietnam War Veteran Robert Carson Krause Presents a Memoir That Paints the Horrors of War and PTSD

Homestead, FL – WEBWIRE

The Viet Nam War is a long, contentious, and divisive war that once robbed soldiers of their youth and sanity. Some recover, while some succumb to the horrors of memories and the flashbacks of chaos and violence. In the memoir “War and Living with PTSD: Vietnam 1969-1970 and the Cambodia Incursion in 1970,” Robert Carson Krause takes readers deep into the jungles of Viet Nam for a look back at the past and on the frontlines of war.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD, is a mental health illness that affects many military veterans. A terrible, horrific, or life-threatening incident that a victim experienced or saw is frequently the catalyst. Nightmares, intense anxiety, flashbacks, panic attacks, and uncontrolled thoughts about the incident are signs that a person suffers from PTSD. Many veterans suffer from this illness, and unfortunately, some never recover.

Robert, a college student, was thrust into the jungle canopies, rice paddies, and wet swamps of the Mekong Delta around Cu Chi, and then in 1970, from April until June, the Cambodia incursion in III and IV Corps. He fought the grunts’ battle through airstrikes, firefights, and ambushes. Robert documents the dread, chaos, death, and anguish of war. The terrible horrors that carve themselves into the features of numerous young American soldiers searing pictures that would stay with them for the rest of their lives. However, Robert also chronicles another war veteran has to fight—the fight for their peace and against PTSD.

The book details the many hardships active and retired military personnel go through before, during, and after their tenure. Robert speaks about the horrors of war as he also encourages everyone to avoid romanticizing wars and see them only as a last resort. Robert also shines a light on mental health issues and welfare for veterans returning from war.

The book tells what transpired in a war that has happened a long time ago—however, the new insights it presents also address contemporary issues that plague the noble defenders of the country.

Canada – Vietnam agrees to zoning arrangement to allow for safe trade from Canada in the event of an African swine fever outbreak

Today, Canada’s Chief Veterinary Officer, Dr. Mary Jane Ireland, announced that the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and the Vietnam Food Administration have agreed to an African swine fever (ASF) zoning arrangement to allow for the safe trade of swine products from disease-free zones in Canada in the event of an ASF outbreak.

October 6, 2021 – Ottawa ON

Today, Canada’s Chief Veterinary Officer, Dr. Mary Jane Ireland, announced that the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and the Vietnam Food Administration have agreed to an African swine fever (ASF) zoning arrangement to allow for the safe trade of swine products from disease-free zones in Canada in the event of an ASF outbreak.

ASF is a viral disease that does not infect humans, but poses a significant risk to the health of Canadian swine herds, pork industry and the Canadian economy.

Following their evaluation of CFIA’s zoning proposal, Vietnam has agreed that restrictions on the import of Canadian pork and pork products, valued at $59 million per year, would be limited to the Primary Control Zone(s) in the event of an ASF outbreak in Canada. This arrangement would serve to minimize trade impacts to the Canadian swine sector while protecting the swine populations in both countries.

Zoning is an internationally-recognized tool used to help manage diseases and facilitate international trade. If a case of ASF is identified, geographic boundaries are defined to contain the outbreak. The area within these geographic boundaries form the Primary Control Zone(s) established in accordance with the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) guidelines. The areas outside of these Primary Control Zone(s) are considered disease-free zones.

Zoning arrangements have been established with the United States, the European Union, Singapore and now Vietnam, and they are being pursued with other trading partners. The arrangement with Vietnam is another positive step in Canada’s prevention and preparedness efforts related to ASF.

Quick facts

Canada’s pork industry contributes over 100,000 direct and indirect jobs and generates approximately $28 billion to the Canadian economy.
In 2020, Canada exported 1.49 million tonnes of pork to 95 countries at a total value of over $5 billion. Canada is the third-largest pork exporting country in both value and volume and represents 14% of the world’s pork trade. Canada exports nearly 70% of its live hog and pork production.
The value of pork exports to Vietnam in 2020 was $59.2 million.
ASF cannot be transmitted to humans and it does not pose a risk to food safety. Canadian pork is safe to eat.
ASF is a contagious, fatal swine disease that spreads to pigs through both direct and indirect contact with infected pigs, pork and pork by-products.
There is no treatment or vaccine for ASF.

Vietnam Helicopter Pilots Association Members Meet Vietnam War Orphan, Daughter of Fallen Hero

VHPA Hdq Arlington, Texas

ARLINGTON, TexasApril 7, 2021PRLog — Posted Courtesy of Wright Enterprises San Francisco~Dallas Community Spotlight~~~

Members of the Vietnam Veterans Helicopter Pilots met with a Vietnam War Orphan, the daughter of Sp5 Wyley Wright Jr. Wednesday to share details of the association’s mission.  Jackie Wright, the eldest of the four children of Sp5 Wright, found the organization over the Internet.

Sp5 Wright died serving as an honor guard for the man who is deemed as “the architect of the Vietnam War,” then U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara.  The U.S. Army helicopter crash in the Mekong River happened on March 9, 1964 taking the lives of 33-year-old Sp5 Wright and 20-year-old PFC John Francis Shea, at a time when the soldiers in Vietnam were called advisors.

“It was an honor for me to meet with soldiers who served in Vietnam,” said Jackie Wright, a filmmaker, whose short documentary, “Love Separated in Life…Love Reunited in Honor,” won Columbia, South Carolina’s Freedom Festival International Award for Best Veteran Short Documentary; won The Houston International Film Festival Best Short; and screened at the San Francisco Black Film Festival, The San Francisco Veterans Film Festival, The Oakland International Film Festival, and the San Diego Black Film Festival . “My father was a member of the 114th Aviation Company out of Fort Knox, Kentucky and the work of crew members was imperative for the work of pilots.”

In the documentary, Wright of San Francisco at the time and her three siblings, Joe Wright of Columbus, Georgia, a U.S. Army Veteran; Stanley Wright of Orangeburg, South Carolina;  and Phyllis Wright Cameron of Antioch, California, find out that the airbase of the 114th Aviation Company was named after a pilot, 1Lt. Kenneth A. Shannon and their father, Sp5 Wyley Wright Jr., a Helicopter Crew Chief.  The airbase in Vinh Long, Vietnam was named the Shannon Wright Compound.  More about the film that chronicles the March 2014 exhumation of Wright from a segregated cemetery in Jacksonville, Florida  and reburial at Arlington National Cemetery with his beloved wife Ouida Fay Wright during the 50th Anniversary of the Civil Rights Movement and the 150th Anniversary of Arlington Cemetery, can be found at

Art Price, Vice President of VHPA and Mike Sheuerman, VHPA Membership Chairman and Scholarship Committee Chairman, met with Wright along with Office Manager, Sherry Rodgers.  While admiring the work of Joe Kline that graces the entrance of the office, the three met Lou Castillo, who served as a U.S. Marine in the 3rd Marine Division and 2nd Supply Battalion 1972-1975.
