Scandal, Controversy and Veterans Care in the United States have gone hand-in-hand for virtually as long as there's been a republic.
After the Revolutionary War, for instance, payments promised by Congress to disabled veterans were left up to the states, and only a few thousand of those who served ever received anything, according to the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Built in 1945, here in Los Angeles, CA, the S.S. Lane Victory served with distinction during World War II, The Korean War, and the Vietnam War as well as in times of peace as part of the merchant fleet. After years of deterioration in mothballs, it took countless hours of restoration to put her back into her original condition by volunteers of the United States Merchant Marine Veterans of World War II. A nationally recognized historic landmark, the S.S. Lane Victory now serves as a living museum and memorial to the service and sacrifices of all Merchant Marine sailors and Navy Armed Guardsmen. Several times each summer she sails into the past on one of her "Victory At Sea" cruises where "old salts" can reminisce, about adventures past, and younger generations can catch a glimpse of bygone times.

Jack's third book, Che Guevara's Marijuana & Baseball Savings & Loan: A Novel of the Early Days of the Peace Corps, may be the best yet--but it's very hard to choose. Brilliant and witty writing combined with exceptional research give the reader a rare glimpse into the early days of the peace corps.
As one Amazon reviewer wrote: "A rollicking good story vividly told by a masterful raconteur. Captures the look and feel of the Peace Corps experience, the places (Oklahoma and Costa Rica)and the sixties in a story only slightly more colorful than life was at the time. Would not have picked up this book if I had not been a Peace Corps volunteer in Costa Rica II, but I would have missed a great evocation of the adventure. Try it, you'll like it."
Jack was a highly regarded philanthropy leaders in the country. And when he retired, he created a second career as a writer and is equally successful. Don't miss this interview with author Jack Shakely to learn who he is and how he got there.
