A Decorated Soldier Explores the Lives of Disabled Veterans in a Fierce and Funny Novel

On the Fault, a new novel by Ronald J. Wichers, showcases the remarkable resiliency of disabled soldiers who wage their own inner battles when a better life seems out of reach.

Ronald J. Wichers’ On the Fault follows the men of Delta Company as the Vietnam War batters their hopes and breaks their bodies. From the thick, steamy jungles to the trauma of the military hospitals where the men recuperate from life-changing injury, this is a world where the odds may seem stacked, but fierce courage and hope can attack any challenge.

A decorated war veteran, Wichers knows firsthand the problems of disabled soldiers. On Oct. 24, 1970, Wichers was on a search and destroy mission in the jungle near Xuan Loc when his unit was assaulted. Hit directly by a rocket propelled grenade, he lost his left arm and was hospitalized for five months at Letterman Hospital on the Presidio in San Francisco. But he turned his experiences into art, channeling them into this brave, brash novel that is as feisty as it is important.
