Nam World by Jeff Boyle from Ormond Beach. 

Against the backdrop of a corrupt Florida Vietnam War theme park and the 2001 Nine Eleven attack, the sixty days that follow witness a Vietnam veteran's struggle to free himself from thirty years of self-confinement in post-traumatic stress. A chance meeting with a woman damaged by the same war and suffering her own survivor's guilt offers hope for healing and redemption if only he will undertake a three thousand mile journey from Daytona Beach to San Francisco to reconnect with her.
