Paul Joseph Bylin, at the age of 17, enlisted in the US Army. By the time he turned 18, he was sent to fight in Vietnam, where he would stay for almost 20 months. That experience changed his life, and the lives of those around him.  After an honorable discharged from the Army, Paul Bylin worked at a few jobs until he was offered a position at Logan International Airport in (Boston, MA).  He was the Lead Mechanic for Signature Flight Support; worked as an aircraft re-fuel mechanic; and, a ground equipment mechanic for 28 years.  Paul Bylin was also a proud member of the Teamsters Local 25 Union, where he served as the Chief Steward at his company until his retirement.  Paul Byline is the author of The Other Casualty of War.

 

According to the book description of The Other Casualty of War, “As a young teenager, Paul thought school was a waste of time. He quit school to find out what the world had in store for him. After many odd jobs he decided to take control of his destiny and join the Army. He takes you through the emotions of boot camp, the orders to go to Vietnam, and the loneliness of being thousands of miles away from his friends and family. He also recalls the fear, the noise, and the death that surrounded him during his two tours. When his tour was over he thought that he would resume a normal life. Now, thirty-plus years later, he realizes that the war never ended for him. He continues to fight and dream every day and night. He hopes to reach out to those that served and remind them, those who have never seen war, that freedom is not free.”
