You Have to Live Hard To Be Hard is the true story of my life. It is focused mostly on two devastating and life changing events in my life: my helicopter accident in July 1994 and the shoot down and death of my brother Art Laguna and 4 other good men that day. I spent 30 years in the U.S. Army, most of it in Special Operations. After Retiring in 2001 I moved to Utah and flew EMS for two hospitals. In 2004 I decided to go to work as a Contractor for a Private Security Company providing security for U.S. diplomats. It was a rewarding job. I love my country and my family. I have been very blessed to have a wonderful family and friends who help me through such hard times. I hope that after reading my book, you will see that we all have hard times in our lives and that we can get through them with the help of family, friends and God.
