Local writer addresses VFW Post
Ten time Emmy Award winner, Bryan Johnston, attended the Jan. 11 meeting of VFW Post #8870 to provide Post members with a preview of his newly published book, “Man With a Gun.”
For nearly three decades, Bryan was a television and video writer/producer, and is the author of three books.
In his latest book, which was just released in December, Bryan weaves several historically accurate military operations and events into a compelling modern day mystery/thriller.
A disgraced Marine Corps sniper, Web Weller, attempts to start a new life in a small Minnesota town, made up by a disproportionately large number of veterans.
Gradually, Web begins to uncover clues that just might identify John F. Kennedy’s assassin.
Bryan has performed an incredible amount of research into the life of a Marine Corps sniper, military history, and the Kennedy assassination, and woven that information into a spell binding novel.
To honor our active duty military personnel, Bryan will donate $1 from every sale of his book to the Fallen Heroes Project (www.fallenheroesproject.org).
This foundation was created by Edmonds artist and VFW Post #8870 member, Mike Reagan.
To date, Reagan has drawn over 3100 portraits of those men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice, by giving up their lives, while serving in our military in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. These portraits have brought untold comfort to our nation’s Gold Star families.
Johnson lives in Lake Forest Park with his wife, two children, and two large dogs.
