Author's Synopsis

Heart of Gray is a riveting narrative of a leader-warrior who chose the “harder right instead of the easier wrong” when on 18 September 1968 in a brutal firefight near Xã Ky Mao he rescued a wounded squad leader ten meters from the NVA position then led his platoon into the thicket, giving his life in the process. For his actions he received the Distinguished Service Cross, the nation’s second highest award for valor.

It’s a pulse pounding combat story of events that took place in Quảng Ngãi Province as seen through the lens of Ray’s letters and the Soldiers he served with and commanded. 

Heart of Gray takes you on a journey of selflessness and sacrifice, a journey of how West Point and its values of “Duty, Honor, Country” influenced his thought process, a journey of how the game of lacrosse and the warrior spirit contributed to his never quit attitude, a journey of how his rigorous military training provided the confidence and courage to face life threatening situations.
