Aaron Miller had won the Congressional Medal of Honor in the Vietnam War. Yet, since the war, he lived a lonely life in a small trailer park as a handyman. Aaron struggled with life after the war, becoming such an undependable alcoholic that his wife divorced him and refused to allow him to see their two children, even years later when he had gotten his life back together.
Dave Russo, a journalist, was working on his first book about the Vietnam War. As he interview veterans, he came across one man who wanted Aaron Miller found because he thought Aaron was the one person that needed to be in Dave’s book. He gave Dave a very generous expense account and asked him to find Aaron. Through his search, Dave also finds love.
The Reunion is an immensely touching story of the heros that were often down graded and of a man who continued to be a hero in the lives that he touched. You must have tissues close by for the last three chapters or so.
