The many characters in The Remains of the Corps come alive!
The Remains of the Corps was written by Tom Hebert, a "literary blacksmith," whose hammers, tongs, and chisels -- including a lengthy self-education in the literary arts, an intense passion, and a fierce persistence -- are shaping the iron wrought by many years of extensive research. Tom's literary role model is Anton Myrer, author of Once an Eagle.
Tom, the son of a former Marine sergeant who served on Iwo Jima, was born in Springfield, Massachusetts. He enlisted in the Marines in 1968 and served in Vietnam in 1970 and 1971 as a First Lieutenant. He is a Certified Public Accountant by vocation. His avocation is writing and researching on military matters. He is married, the father of two, and the grandfather of five.
“They passed on a chance to be fanciful,
Choosing instead to be dutiful.
They tried, and they cried,
And eventually died,
Believing war had made
their lives meaningful.”
- Lawrence Blakeslee
I have written Volume I of the first-ever multi-generational account of a Marine Corps family.
It is an epic story!
