Kent McInnis signs “Sierra Hotel”

November 2 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Kent McInnis enlisted in the Air Force in 1969, while awaiting acceptance to pilot training. He earned his wings in 1971 at Laredo AFB, Texas, with a class proudly named the Rio River Rats, an homage to the “real” River Rats who risked their lives flying missions over North Vietnam.

Sierra Hotel, the first of a three-novel series, looks at the Vietnam War from the perspective of airmen in the rear echelon dealing with a different enemy—dysfunctional commanders, war protestors, and personal demons, while supporting a war their leaders are unwilling to win.
