Brian Lynch, USMC “served in the enlisted and officer ranks of The United States Marine Corps for nearly 15 years, with vast experience in small and large scale reconnaissance, light armor and infantry operations in Special Operations Capable units. He was a Lieutenant at the time of the Los Angeles Riots. He has a BS in Communications from Norwich University, and an MA in International Relations from the USMC Command & Staff College. Lynch lives in South Florida with his wife and six children.” Brian Lynch is the author of Thorn in my Pride: a novel of the L.A. riots of 1992.
According to the book, “Confronting vivid racism, bigotry and violence head-on, the Marines in Los Angeles are troubled most by their citizenry – the people whose constitution they support and defend. They go about their business as a team, multicultural, multiracial, but as one. And the people take notice. Released just before the twentieth anniversary of the most egregious and pervasive civil disturbance in the history of the United States, Thorn in my Pride is not a war story, rather a tale of learning tolerance, coexistence and acceptance. And the inadvertent teachers are barely out of their teens.”
