Author Jerald Watts, a native Georgian served in the USAF in the early 1960s during a period of increasing world tension of the Cold War. While a flight surgeon he describes those personal reflections as he accompanies and advocates for his air crews world wide. He describes intense international events, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Soviet intimidation of West Berlin, the American participation with UN forces in the former Belgian Congo, and the buildup and beginning of the Viet Nam conflict. From a personal aspect he brings a "memorable memoir" to life. His earlier memoir, PROMISES KEPT, a story of Atlanta's Grady Hospital during the 1950s and 1960s, a period of Racial Segregation to Integration, brought a nomination of Georgia Author of the Year in 2010 by the Georgia Writers Association. Now retired after practicing orthopaedic surgery for over 30 years he resides in Peachtree City, Ga with his companion, author Ellen Hunter Ulken and his English Setter Luke.
