This book is a fictionalized nonfiction novel exposing the story of an artist and how he relates to the last draft lottery (Vietnam War Era) of the United States. It depicts real accounts of true life experiences coming from the San Joaquin Valley of California to the Monterey Peninsula along the West coast of the old Fort Ord Military facility, California which is currently now the California State University of Monterey Peninsula. The Iron Grains is a good recipe for peace in our lifetimes and its outreach can be used as a guide to the future for ending all wars in our time.

Jess Zepeda, a lifelong Californian, artist, and substitute schoolteacher currently living and working in San Francisco, has published his new book “The Iron Grains”: a stirring memoir inspired by the actual experiences of a young man drafted into the US Army in the Vietnam War era.
