Thomas Gonzalez is a Vietnam veteran. He served his country with distinction during those horrific days from the years of 1966-1967. Gonzalez started with a squad of marines and ended up with a platoon of marines. At the beginning of his tour, his squad of marines was known as the Santa-Ana’s raiders because the squad had a few Hispanics. The troop would confiscate anything that was not nailed down. Despite the many times they were engaged with the enemy and were fired upon with thousands of bullets, by the grace of God, they all managed to survive and come home alive. It is for this reason that Gonzalez christen the squad, the Invisible Squad. As the years went by, he started to realize that he was getting into the autumn years of his life.

Because of his love for children and animals, Mr. Gonzalez decided to write short stories because he wanted to share with the world his thoughts and ideas. He has written two books about his Vietnam experiences (Sarge and The Invisible Squad) and has also written three short children’s books (Fairy Tales).

Children’s Book – Sydney the Monster Stops Bullies

Sydney the Monster Stops BulliesSydney the Monster Stops Bullies
By Dr. Tom DePaoli
Published: April 2015
ISBN: 978-1511749954
Pages: 30
Genre: Children’s Book

Sydney the Monster Stops Bullies is a new children’s book about a quirky and friendly monster who overcomes his own bullying nightmare to emerge a true victorious hero. Through a story that is entertaining, uplifting yet inherently serious, young readers will not only learn how to spot bullying and its social, physical and mental detriments – but also find the empowerment they need to respect humanity’s rich differences.

“The story’s bottom line is a powerful moral of friendship, love and support; forces that can transcend bullying and bring any child’s life back on track,” explains the author. “It is vital that children learn to recognize the social, physical and psychological effect that are part and parcel of bullying. Preaching directly to children doesn’t work, so I opted for an enchanting story with a happy ending! All kids love monsters, hence why I created such an unusual main character. Sydney is able to influence children in a way no human can, and the fact that he is one step removed from real life allows children to confide in his message in a way they simply couldn’t with any friend or relative. It’s powerful stuff.” The author sees wide appeal for his work. “There’s no denying that bullying is an epidemic that knows no geographical or cultural boundaries. Therefore, this book has truly global potential. There should be a copy in in every home, school, church or any place where young people congregate. It contains a message they desperately need to hear.”
