A Memoir

David Lara was 14 years-old when his father tried to kill him. The shocking event launches a story that begins with struggle, leads to war and hurtles to revolution.

Though the world vilifies him, with Dave and his friends as targets of military witch-hunts, he finds strength and confidence in the life he is forced to build, but comes to embrace.

This is only the beginning of a life that will change the American landscape.
“Zippo Boys” is a journey from Da Nang to Stonewall.
