Otis Brown

After many years as an Army paratrooper and a U.S. Marine during the Vietnam war, the military concluded Otis Brown could no longer be trusted with a loaded gun. He then went to several colleges and universities, and was committed many times to various mental institutions. Literature found him and he was finally rescued by it. He now spends his time writing plays and short stories until this day.
