McKendree R. Long III

McKendree R. (Mike) Long III is a former soldier whose awards and decorations include the Parachutist's Badge, the Combat Infantryman's Badge, the Silver Star, and the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry (Gold and Silver Stars). Retiring in 1980, he served the next 29 years as a Financial Advisor with Merrill Lynch and began to work on his first novel during his last years there. NO GOOD LIKE IT IS was published through Createspace upon his second retirement at the end of 2009. The sequel (DOG SOLDIER MOON) was released by Goldminds Publishing in December 2011. A third piece (working title: HIGHER GROUND) will include the battle of the Little Bighorn. Mike is active in SERTOMA, SCV, and Western Writers of America (WWA), and is a Life Member of the NRA and VFW; he's also an avid collector and shooter of guns of the Old West, much to his wife's dismay. Married since 1960, Mike and Mary enjoy traveling the West, but split most of their time between Blythewood and Seabrook Island, SC. They have two married daughters, four grandchildren, and one granddaughter-in-law.
