Jay Foreman's entire life revolved around football-from the moment he was born to an NFL great to the day he retired from his own professional football career. In between, his many successes were paired with some hard lessons. His honest look back reveals the cost of being a champion. In this in-depth personal memoir, Jay explores his football career and how it changed him, describing his unique childhood and his life before, during, and after his time in the NFL. He was ready for some of the challenges-but others knocked this accomplished linebacker completely off his feet. With his father's legacy at his back, Jay proved himself as a Nebraska Cornhusker, where he was a starting member of the 1995 and 1997 championship teams. He went on to play with the newly established Houston Texans in the NFL, but the addictive professional-athlete lifestyle soon took its toll. He could get anything he wanted, and this changed him-and it changed the people around him. Today, Jay focuses on nonprofit work in Lincoln, Nebraska, where he has established the Foreman Foundation. His raw and real life story offers an illuminating glimpse into the joys-and perils-celebrity status affords.

Bare Feet, Iron Will

Stories from the Other Side of Vietnam's Battlefields

Ever since the American Revolution, military service has been a proud tradition for the Zumwalt family. Tradition initially led the author to join his father and brother in the Navy, before later transferring to the US Marine Corps. During his 26 years in uniform, the author saw service in three conflicts-Vietnam, Panama and the first Persian Gulf war. It was Vietnam, however, that ultimately would launch him on an unexpected journey-long after the guns of that war had fallen silent-triggered by the loss of a brother who had fought there. This journey was an emotional one-initially of anger towards the Vietnamese and the conflict that claimed his older brother. But it unexpectedly took a change in direction. In Vietnam almost two decades after Saigon's fall, the author, in a private talk with a former enemy general officer, came to understand an aspect of the war he never before had. In that talk, they shared personal insights about the war-discovering a common bond. It unlocked a door through which the author passed to start his own healing process. It began a journey where he would meet hundreds of North Vietnamese and Viet Cong veterans-listening to their personal stories of loss, sacrifice and hardship. It opened the author's eyes to how a technically inferior enemy, beaten down by superior US firepower, was able to get back up-driven by an "iron will" to emerge triumphant. "Bare Feet, Iron Will" takes the reader on a fascinating journey, providing stories-many never before told-as to how enemy ingenuity played a major role in the conflict, causing us not to see things that were there or to see things there that were not! It shares unique insights into the sacrifice and commitment that took place on the other side of Vietnam's battlefields. About the Author JAMES G. ZUMWALT Lieutenant Colonel James Zumwalt is a retired Marine infantry officer who served in the Vietnam war, the 1989 intervention into Panama and Desert Storm. An author, speaker and business executive, he also currently heads a security consulting firm named after his father-Admiral Zumwalt & Consultants, Inc. He writes extensively on foreign policy and defense issues, having written hundreds of articles for various newspapers, magazines and professional journals. His articles have covered issues of major importance, oftentimes providing readers with unique perspectives that have never appeared elsewhere. His work, on several occasions, has been cited by members of Congress and entered into the US Congressional Record.

The Iron Will of Vishvamitra is based on a creative interpretation of the causes and effects of two mythological water-wars fought during the Rigvedic period on the banks of the rivers Ravi and Yamuna. This book tells the reader that when natural water resources are exploited forcibly and unreasonably, without caring for environment and agriculture, a fierce struggle breaks out between the rival claimants. Nature plays havoc with the perpetrator as well as the sufferer. The perpetrator’s greed and avarice bring about the doom of the good and the bad alike. When exploitation and misuse of natural water resources continue unhindered and all efforts of persuasion fail, a man of iron will like Vishvamitra takes up the cudgels to save the earth and teaches the wrong-doers a lesson. On the surface, this is what the book is about, but readers may delve deep into it to understand the "unseen" meaning. Also available as e-book on all major online platforms such as Amazon Kindle,Kobbo,Rockstand and Google Play.
