Pearson Media Group has long helped brilliant authors transmute visions and dreams into reality since 1990 by quickly adapting to or raising the standards in the film industry. For decades, it has continued to push boundaries and talents by fulfilling its core promise in providing creativity and inspiration a place to start its journey to success. This time, they pledge their service to Johnny Pugh’s memoir the same way this veteran army pledged himself for his country.

The book conveys the mind of an innocent young man grappling with the brutal reality of fighting in the Vietnam War, being sent to it under false premises and with false promises. This is an often sad but ultimately triumphant tale of one soldier finally overcoming his burdensome traumas.

As a way for him to heal his soul and to figure out what happened to him, Pugh relives the year he spent as an army rifleman battling unseen guerrilla fighters in one of the most dangerous places during the Vietnam War, the Iron Triangle. His memoir starts with the narrative of a nightmare, one of the traumatic after-effects that accompanied him through many decades, then shifts in time back to his introduction to military life, through descriptions of boot camp and his arrival in South Vietnam.

Through Smoke-Teared Eyes offers an absorbing description of the camaraderie Pugh shared with his fellow squad members, learning from them critical survival skills and his own identity as a Chicano. After witnessing several atrocities against the Vietnamese peasants at the hands of the American military, he is compelled to question his own role as a participant in this bloody conflict.

Readers will learn the truth behind wars as this heartbreakingly honest memoir discloses the morally wrong motives of superiors in the name of freedom. Pugh and all the others would not be forgotten. Their personal sacrifices and their bravery would be honored for all time.

About the Author
Johnny F. Pugh, from Albuquerque, New Mexico, served in the Vietnam War from 1966-1967. Although he suffered from chronic pain due to a service-related back injury and PTSD, this didn’t stop him from becoming an award-winning designer and builder of adobe homes, as well as a professional painter and part-time sculptor, artist, writer, poet, loving husband, father, and grandfather. At the time of his death in 2011 from lung cancer linked to Agent Orange, he and his wife, Cristina, lived in San Diego, CA. This book is a promise by his wife that his story and those of his comrades would not be forgotten, that their sacrifices and their bravery against terrible odds and morally wrong motives from their superiors, would be honored for all time.
