Author Ron Mencarelli’s new book “Come Up Voice” is a searing memoir of his military service in Vietnam and his long and continuing journey toward psychological recovery

Ron Mencarelli, a US military veteran and former helicopter pilot who has suffered from PTSD for more than a half century since his service in the Vietnam war presently residing with his wife of fifty-two years in South Carolina, where he is still undergoing counseling, has completed his new book “Come Up Voice”, a riveting exercise in catharsis undertaken to banish the demons that have haunted his nightmares since 1971.

“Come up Voice” is a story about a helicopter pilot during the Vietnam War who after fifty years is still struggling with PTSD. It describes in vivid detail his journey from “new guy” innocence to a battle tested and hardened veteran. But his journey does not end there.

He has always been afraid to tell this story, fearing the inability to separate his nightmares from reality. His biggest fear of him however was what others would think and the possibility that his family of him would view him as psychologically impaired. But after years of encouragement from his counselors of him, I have decided to write it all down. Wanting so desperately to finally heal and not wake each morning weary over distinguishing between nightmares and reality. This book is an attempt to reveal what PTSD looks like. It discloses how the thickness of war and fifty years of nightmares can affect a person for a lifetime.
