Patriot, family man, physician profiled in ‘On Laughter-Silvered Wings’

From plowing the sandy soil of Lowcountry South Carolina to treating the medical maladies of the farming families of his home county to fighting the secret war in Laos — follow the adventures of Dr. Robert Jackson, a poor farm boy turned medical doctor turned decorated Vietnam War veteran turned patient advocate.

His story is told in “On Laughter-Silvered Wings” (Courier Publishing, 354 pages, $34.95, hardcover), by his son, Robert E. Jackson Jr., M.D.

The last words Jackson Sr. spoke to his sister Eunice were, “Sis, you fly low and slow. I’ll fly high and fast!” And that he did. As one friend observed, “He accomplished more in 41 years than most of us will in an entire lifetime.”

“On Laughter-Silvered Wings” records the remarkable life story of a country doctor, a family man, and an American patriot.

The author is a popular speaker for men’s groups, wildlife banquets, prolife events, and mission seminars. Currently residing in Spartanburg, S.C., he continues to work part-time in a rural family medicine clinic in the nearby Grassy Pond community.
