Alan C. Thomas, “HMCM/USN, Ret. served on active duty as a U.S. Navy Hospital Corpsman/ Medic from 1967 to 1970.  His duty stations included three naval hospitals and overseas assignments aboard a Submarine Tender, and in the field with detachments of the 3rd and 5th divisions of U.S. Marines in Vietnam.  Thomas was assigned to a Marine squad in Quang Tri Province, Vietnam during the Studies and Observation Group (S.O.G.) mission “Sunrise” on February 23, 1970. Following his honorable discharge in 1970, Thomas served in the Naval Reserves and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in environmental health from the University of Georgia. Thomas retired as the manager of environmental health programs for The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation after 20 years of service in 2008.  Thomas is a life member of the Disabled American Veterans (DAV).”  Alan C. Thomas is the author of Flashing Back: Choosing to live with or die from PTSD and  Stingray: The Russians Are Listening

According to the book description of Flashing Back: Choosing to live with or die from PTSD, “My memoir answers the question: How do I heal from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)? The book reveals how PTSD affects a person and their family. I reveal the PTSD experience and the cost of combat to Hospital Corpsmen, Medics, Nurses, and Doctors. The cost is enormous and often spans decades. For some people, war and other traumatic events in our lives do not have an ending but rather continue as post trauma. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder can be a never ending nightmare if the sufferer does not know what I reveal about healing in my book.”

According to the book description of Stingray: The Russians Are Listening, “In 1980, Rob's life became entwined in the midst of another clandestine operation with one key difference. That operation did not fail. It was alleged that the Russian KGB codenamed their operation "Stingray" or "Operation Stingray." "Stingray" made it possible for the former Soviet Union and more specifically the Russian Navy to know in real time the coordinates of our "Fast Attack" Class and "Boomer Class" submarine fleet.”
