A Favorite Character from Veteran, Book Two: Gary Burgess

Gary runs the men’s shelter and is revered by everyone in social services in Columbia City. An aging 60’s flower child, Gary studied art at Berkley, but time on the streets in the Haight drew him to do what he could for folks dealing with addiction. Years later, he was compelled to help the guys coming back from Asia and made a career of helping others. A fierce civil rights advocate, Gary speaks up for those who can’t defend themselves. He digs Dylan, Hendrix and Sam Cooke.
