Former Gunship Pilot Writes Provocative Book about Vietnam

Finally a book about Vietnam with a completely different perspective of the War.


Mack Payne, retired business owner living in Lake Placid, Florida, has written a book about his experiences in Vietnam titled “Vietnam Veteran Memoirs”. It was inspired by a Toastmaster speech he delivered about an incident he experienced while flying a Cobra Gunship over Laos during the war.
He is a highly decorated veteran of two years in Vietnam and realized it was time to record his memories of those times.  Unlike many books written about the war, Payne’s book is a lesson of inspiration spiced with humor. It details the challenges he had to overcome and the lessons he had to learn. Later he put those lessons to use in his business pursuits and among other things built the largest cultured marble company in the State of Florida.
Reviewers have described the book as: “providing a different perspective of the Vietnam War - a book that makes for heart stopping reading - bringing forward a fresh and engaging, relentlessly paced story that keeps you turning pages and leaves you eager for the next chapter.” It was also described by one reviewer as being reminiscent of the M.A.S.H. TV series.
Payne holds an MBA Degree and is a Distinguished Toastmaster who has given hundreds of speeches. His preferred topic is inspiration and achievement.  He intends to use the lessons described in his book to encourage and enable others to create and realize their dreams.
The author describes his book as a “book of miracles” and invites anyone to contribute to his miracle list on his website, Each week a free copy of “Vietnam Veteran Memoirs” will be given to the person submitting the best miracle story.
“Vietnam Veteran Memoirs” is available in ebook form and paperback. It can be purchased at, in book stores and at:
