Dr. Wesley R. Harden III is a retired surgeon and author, which combine to give him a unique insight into the human condition. A native Pennsylvanian, he resides in Northern Virginia with his wife of 44 years. He has three kids and seven grandkids. A Navy veteran, he loves the power of the written word. When used in proper sequence, words can take you inside an atom, to the rocky plains of Mars, or to the end of the universe. Dr. Harden has five books available for purchase — the "Bombing" triology-Bombing, The Business of Killing and When We Were Young.  How Could You, a crime novel based on true events and Thirteen Days, the story of a life well remembered.
