Bookfest Profile: Lee Alley

Lee Alley is a decorated Vietnam War combat veteran from Wheatland, Wyoming, who now helps veterans of other wars adjust to civilian life and come to terms with their experiences. For more than three decades, Lee endured an emotionally draining silence over his fighting days in Vietnam, but he now speaks proudly, openly and emotionally of his service and helps other soldiers address and share their deeply personal experiences. Lee is the author of Back from War: Finding Hope and Understanding in Life after Combat, an emotional first-hand account of a veteran’s difficulty to adjust to civilian life and how, after decades, he overcame his silent suffering to become a major advocate for veterans of all wars.

Lee Alley is one of 40-some authors who will conduct presentations and sign their books during the Wyoming Book Festival Sept. 14-15 in Cheyenne. FMI: http://www.wyomingbookfestival.org/authors.html.
