Welcome to the home of Nighthawk: A Young Airman’s Tour at Clark Air Base, my first book.

“While staring at the image I felt a strange sensation move through my body. It seemed that the dawn had broken the chains holding distant memories hostage.” Bill Bowers

Nighthawk reads with humbleness in a voice spattered with a sly sense of humor reminiscent of Hawkeye Pierce from the TV show MASH.  This coming-of-age military story bursts the mold of the military memoir genre by holding nothing back including exciting exploits, daring adventures, important life lessons and even a young man falling in love for the first time.

“The book grips you from the beginning.  As Bill stares in the mirror, memories of his childhood flood his mind.  Wondering if he is about to die, he has an epiphany.  His soul is calling to him.  He must share his story with the world.” Tyler O’Shea
