Short Stories of One Who Comes and Goes
by L.W. Coffee

ONE WHO COMES AND GOES is a collection of short stories based on real life events and written in that spirit. When John Silver came home from Vietnam he was suffering from PTSD but he didn’t know. For 46 years he dealt with PTSD. Yes, there was something wrong with his life but no clues. There was no one to talk to, not even his wife. Alcohol became his only friend. He found no shortage of co-horts to comfort him. In reality PTSD is a debilitating mental disorder and affects men returning from combat zones. They are then thrown into a civilian population that is not aware of PTSD. Not a good situation. One Who Comes and Goes is a small effort to try and alert and/or make aware a population who does not know what PTSD is.

My name is Leonard Coffee. I was born in Oklahoma City in 1945, raised in Kansas and now live in the North Bay of San Francisco Bay. I am a member of the Sioux, Creek and Cherokee Nations and served in Vietnam in 1966 and 1967. I have a Business Degree from Northeastern State University in Oklahoma. For 13 years my home was in the Santa Clara Valley California working in Aerospace and as a draftsman. I am most proud of the fact that I along with a co-worker did all the testing for the power supplies for the TV cameras that went to the moon on Apollo 11.
