Authors in the Afternoon with Marc CullisonMarch 28, 2017
4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Oklahoma author Marc Cullison will appear at the Fort Smith Public Library to sign copies of his new book, "Vietnam…Again." More than a travelogue, the book explores the edification of a soldier returning to the place where he fought; the reality of coming to terms with his prejudices and antipathy toward a former foe. Though the book, the author discovers answers to questions long buried in his mind which absolve him of the indignity carried for years, opening a vision into America always suspected, but never seen. Copies of Vietnam … Again will be available for sale and signing at this open-house style event. Marc Cullison is a baby-boomer who grew up in an era when education was everything and duty to country was a responsibility. After receiving a bachelor’s degree in architectural engineering at Oklahoma State University, he was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the United States Army Reserve Corps of Engineers. During his four-year tour of duty, he served as helicopter pilot with the 129th Assault Helicopter Company in II Corps, Vietnam, in 1971. His most recent career was a math and science instructor at Connors State College in Warner and Muskogee, Oklahoma, from which he retired in 2014. He lives with his wife in a self-built log house near Sallisaw.
