Alan C. Thomas, the author of three books entitled FLASHBACK: Vietnam; FLASHING BACK; and STINGRAY: The Russians Are Listening.

A retired Navy Hospital Corpsman and Vietnam War veteran, Alan C. Thomas explores life-threatening experiences and healing from post-traumatic stress disorder in his memoirs. His work deconstructs real-life traumatic experiences. One of his most notable experiences was his participation alongside Marines in a failed Studies and Observation Group (SOG) mission code-named Sunrise in February 1970. Alan C. Thomas seeks to help people with post-traumatic stress disorder heal through his writing.

After his reserve service and Honorable Discharge, he earned a Bachelor’s degree at the University of Georgia, where he majored in Environmental Health Science.
Alan Thomas was employed at a living history museum in Williamsburg, Virginia serving for two decades and retiring in 2008 as Manager of Environmental Health Programs. Currently, he enjoys promoting his books through his website at www.alancthomasbooks.com; book signing events, where he meets many of his readers, who have also experienced life-altering traumas and have benefited from his writing; and media interviews.
