Mark Bowser Reads Video Series: “Some Gave It All” Part Two


“Some Gave It All” is the riveting story of Marine Danny Lane. Danny Lane is an American hero earning two Purple Hearts among other medals for valor during the Vietnam War. He then came home to an ungrateful nation, yet became a hero once again as a decorated police officer, detective, and body guard.

Danny Lane is a martial arts expert and has been inducted into numerous hall of fames for this sport. He is a ninth degree Black Belt, nine time national martial arts champion, former world kick boxing champion, and one of Chuck Norris’ top Black Belts. Danny has trained with Chuck Norris for over thirty five years.

“Mark Bowser Reads” is an informal video series where Author and Professional Speaker Mark Bowser reads the books he has written. So, grab yourself a cup of coffee, sit back and enjoy this segment of one of the most exciting adventures…

Chuck Norris said, “Marine Corporal Danny Lane received two purple hearts for his combat wounds during the Vietnam War. He shares the details of his gripping and courageous story for the first time in 50 years in his new book, (co-written by Mark Bowser) “Some Gave it All: Through the Fire of the Vietnam War….

“Because too many of our Vietnam War veterans returned to an ungrateful nation, I hope Lane’s book becomes a bestseller and turns into a movie so a grateful nation today can honor these fallen heroes and freedom fighters….

“I’d encourage you to pick up a copy of “Some Gave it All” and read the rest of his inspirational story. His co-author, Mark Bowser, also gives some great additional biographical notes about Lane in Bowser’s four-minute YouTube video….

“I want to thank Cpl. Lane for being brave enough to share his story with the world and have to relive so much of it in order to do so. My wife, Gena, and I also want to thank him from our hearts for his continued service to our country as a share of the proceeds from his book will be donated to Kickstart Kids, our non-profit foundation and charity to help middle school children learn character through karate. (Lane is also a decorated martial arts champion.)”

Worth Another Look: What Chuck Norris says about Danny Lane

What Does Chuck Norris say about “Some Gave It All” by Danny Lane and Mark Bowser?


How Would You Respond…?

Technically, they weren’t boots anymore, but that didn’t comfort them. They were virgins in the world of combat. The four “grunts” nervously hesitated, hunkering down in their foxhole. Time seemed to slow down, but it was actually only a few seconds. Somebody had to do something, but it was so hard. Fear had paralyzed the four grunts. And can we blame them? What would we do if we shared that foxhole with them on that fateful night?

Danny’s mind raced to Gunner Plummer. What would he say at this moment? “Lane, man up! Just like in training! Do your job!” A small dose of courage welled up inside of Danny. He raised his shoulder just a bit and threw an illumination grenade to light up the area around their hole. With any luck, they would be able to at least see the silhouettes of Charlie. Danny then activated the switch that controlled the claymore mine they had positioned in front of their foxhole. Steel balls flew from the mine in multiple directions. Would it be enough to protect them?

Sotere, Nick, and Wells popped the pins on their M-26 grenades and launched them towards the incoming gunfire. The main company then threw illumination grenades. The night sky was now lit up like a Christmas tree. Danny’s knees seemed to buckle with fear. He knew they needed to fire back, or death would be their destination, but his body wasn’t obeying his thoughts. Ever so slightly, he scooted himself closer to the foxhole rim. He raised his eyes over the rim and saw the shadowy figures of Charlie headed their way.

“Here they come! Get ready! Let’s do this!” Danny screamed. Courage and reality overcame fear, and the grunts unleashed their M-16 machine guns on the enemy. They emptied 30-round clips one after another as fast as they could. The enemy retaliated with equal fury.

Before long, they heard a scream in the background. With sweat pouring down their bodies despite the cold, wet rain, the four grunts heard the scream again. The scream seemed to pierce the chaos all around them.
