Camillo Mac Bica, Ph.D., is a professor of philosophy and ethics at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. His philosophical focus is in Applied Ethics, particularly the relation between war, morality, and healing. Dr. Bica is a former United States Marine Corps Officer and veteran of the Vietnam War. He is a long time activist for peace and justice, a member of the Vietnam Veterans Against the War, and Coordinator of the Long Island Chapter of Veterans for Peace. In addition to the three books in his War Legacy Series, "Worthy of Gratitude,""Beyond PTSD," and "There are No Flowers in a War Zone," articles by Dr. Bica have been published in numerous philosophical journals and online alternative news sites.
Bica is a poet of war who speaks with the heart of a warrior. His perspective is passionate and poignant, and his analysis razor sharp, always with a deep humanity in his voice.”

"Camillo “Mac” Bica, combat veteran, philosopher, Marine Corps officer, and proponent for truth, clearly expresses what I and millions of other veterans have been incapable of articulating for years. The powerful truth of his insights move me to tears of gratitude and admiration.I look forward to reading everything this sage has written and will ever write. May he live forever."

--Fred Tomasello, Author of Walking Wounded: Memoir of a Combat Veteran
"One of my Buddhist teachers, a Zen monk, once said to me and a group of combat veterans, that we were “the light at the tip of the candle.” We burn hot and bright. We know the real nature of war, and we can be an important force for healing and change in the world. This book, in its insight and clarity, adds brightness to our light​."
