We’re happy to announce that SBPRA author Dan Rodgers has been featured on the front page of the Porterville Recorder’s online edition. Vietnam veteran and Porterville resident Dan Rodgers is the author of Call me Sergeant Rock: How a Boy Becomes a Man in Vietnam.
The article details Rodgers’ inspiration to write the book, which tells his own story of being drafted out of Porterville College to go to war. Earning a Silver Medal and two Purple Hearts, Rodgers shared his story with family and friends upon his return and was encouraged to write his memoirs.
