As I continue to age, I find it harder to remember the things I would like to write about. At least three times in the ensuing years since I last wrote a book, my life has been spared in situations that could have easily gone the other way. I wanted to write at least one or more books before I go over the divide, so this is the next installment in my life and the experiences that influence it.

A Persian Promise is the memoir of Dr. Hossein Sakhai, a highly successful neurosurgeon from Huntington, West Virginia.

At the age of 15, Hossein was greatly motivated by the untimely death of his older brother from typhoid fever. Vowing to improve life for his fellowman and his community, he set for himself the most lofty goal he could conceive. With determination, persistence, intelligence, and a supercharged worth ethic, he satisfied his Persian promise as he became not only an accomplished neurosurgeon but a very successful business entrepreneur.

Despite Dr. Sakhai’s professional success, he was continuously challenged by the culture clash between his Iranian Islamic heritage and his family life in America. After four unsuccessful marriages and many stressful family trials, Hossein, at the age of 85, views his life with clarity and wisdom and pens this memoir for the benefit of his children and their progeny.

With e-mails inundating us, I think this will be my last personal letter. John asked me some time ago to write about the highlights of our lives, and once again I’m too late. John is gone now and I apologize to him for not doing this sooner. But I do feel that he will somehow be aware of this and I hope that his family enjoys it. This letter will abound in digressions, but that’s the way our lives were.

My Story was written in an effort to capture my memories of the Vietnam War. I arrived in Vietnam on December 19, 1967, as a naive twenty-year-old private, E-3, and left on December 9, 1968, as a disillusioned Staff Sergeant, E-6, with two Bronze Stars and a Purple Heart. As a soldier assigned to Alpha Company, Third Battalion, Twenty-first Infantry, 196th Light Infantry Brigade, I fought the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese Regulars (NVA) in the flatlands and the mountains west of Tam KY and the NVA on the DMZ north of Dong Ha. Enemy fire, malaria, accidents, and the scorching heat all took a heavy toll on Alpha Company. The high casualty rate was a constant drain on the company’s experience and the lack of experience produced yet more casualties. On more than one occasion, stupid mistakes cost young men their lives. But at other times, like when we turned back the NVA on the DMZ, I can assure you that there wasn’t a better outfit in Vietnam on that night in May.

The story begins in a world without television, internet, iPads, or supermarkets; where blackberries were only fruit and children had time for play. This is a story many immigrants could tell. They survived with the same resources: hard work, determination, a community of family and faith in God.

In PART ONE read to discover the similarities and differences in the wilderness times your ancestors and mine overcame to find the American dream.

In PART TWO read about struggles and hardships in the twenty first century. People have “wilderness times” in their lives today. Current survival stories can provide hope and strength for those of us in the twenty first century.

In PART THREE, the reader will discover the many ways in which people of Italian descent made a positive difference on society. Although several people are named, it is only a sample of Italians who made a positive impact on our world.

Everyone has a story. After seeing stories shared here, hopefully readers will be encouraged to share their stories with others.

Betrayal is a richly woven memoir of my dramatic fight for survival during World War II, starting as an aspiring soldier in the Army and ending my military career as a fighter pilot in the Polish Air Force and British RAF in England. It is a true story filled with suspense that reads like a novel.

After my escape from a German POW camp, I joined the Polish Underground Army. When my arrest became imminent, I evaded the German Gestapo only to be captured by the Russian NKVD (KGB). They charged me with counter-revolutionary activities and sentenced me to a Siberian labor camp, Gulag.

This is my memorable love story with a mysterious Polish girl. In similar adventures, we were facing the daunting perils of that time during one of the most momentous chapters in modern history, the treacherous Siberian taigas, Kazakhstan steppe, and the Middle East deserts.

After the Allied victory in Europe, I discovered that I was betrayed by the Western Allies at the Yalta Conference. As a result, after I was stripped of my Polish citizenship I became stateless.
