Michael Kelley

Michael Kelley was drafted in 1969 and sent to Vietnam where he was severely wounded and hospitalized for more than six months. After his release, he obtained an MFA and went to work as a county appraiser, while simultaneously pursuing a career as an artist. His Vietnam-related art has been widely exhibited and he has published numerous articles about his experiences. This book is a five-year labor of love. Michael passed away in December 2011.
