He was awarded Bronze Star Medals with Combat “V”, the Combat Action Ribbon, the Presidential Unit Citation and the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry and other decorations. In 2003, he published the historical novel Slingshot based on his experiences during the war. Thomas Corey, past president of Vietnam Veterans of America called the book, "A graphic and compelling picture of Vietnam's warriors. A picture that today, more than ever, people need to understand and appreciate."
