Major Dennis Copson, USMC (ret), served 20+ years in the United States Marine Corps and is a Vietnam Vet. During his time in combat with the 3rd Reconnaissance Battalion, 3rd Marine Division, in the northern-most province of Quang Tri, South Vietnam, he was awarded two Bronze Star Medals with Combat "V" (valor). His primary specialty as a Marine was in Special Operations. —
He currently lives in Oceanside, Ca. He is a highly acclaimed freelance writer and editor, available for writing-assignments and to edit your work. "No job is too small—nor too large!"
Major Copson has published over 100 articles for e–zines; 52 are available to read at: http://EzineArticles.com/expert/Major_Dennis_Copson/120497
Major Dennis Copson has adopted two maxims as a result of his recent adventure in editing, co-writing, and assisting in publishing a major nonfiction book—more than 200,000 words in length—chronicling the life of an individual who quit high school to enlist in the United States Marine Corps, was awarded the Silver Star Medal for heroism as a Sgt in Vietnam, and ultimately retiring as a Colonel after nearly thirty-six years of service to his country. Colonel Jim Bathurst's long and distinguished career is documented in "We'll All Die As Marines: One Marine's Journey From Private To Colonel," now proudly displayed and sold in the gift shops of the #2 museum in the United States (according to YELP)--National Museum of the Marine Corps at Quantico, Va.—and the #17 rated museum also--The USS Midway Museum in San Diego, Ca. The book is also a brisk seller and available online in more than 14 book stores including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, eBay, etc.
"I am not Mr. Nice Guy—I'm an editor, dammit!"
"I don't write 'em; I only edit 'em!"
According to Dennis Copson, "Being selected as the editor of the Colonel's book was one of the highlights of my life in so many ways."
