New Fairfield resident Richard Cacace wanted to leave a chronicle of his life to his sons. In his book, The Path I Walked, he describes the first 20 years of his life as a roller coaster ride that ended badly. He then tells about his time in the US Marine Corps, where he was filled with a renewed sense of pride that helped him climb out of the abyss into which he had fallen. It taught him to value people not by their color or nationality but by their effort and desire. Vietnam gave him the desire to live again.
