Symm Hawes McCord was born during the early days of World War II in the same month that Hitler sent his forces into Poland. His memories of that war are of his father and uncles having left for war and some never returning. He went on to grow up in the southern city of Augusta, Georgia practically across the street from the famous Augusta National Golf Club where he was privileged to work a few times at the annual Masters Tournament. Symm went through school there in Augusta, was married, and attended the Medical College of Georgia. In 1966, he became a general medical officer in the medical company of the 199th Light Infantry Brigade in Vietnam. He received the Bronze Star for meritorious service while he was there.
After his military service, he set up a private family practice of medicine in the mountains of North Carolina. There were three children resulting from his first marriage and in 1981 three more came into his life when he remarried. He now lives in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and has been the primary author of one book, The Annunaki Enigma: Creation and a co-author in another, The Annunaki Enigma: Armageddon, 2020.
This current book, The Deuce, is about a subject that has long touched his heart. It reflects the many positive character attributes of those great people whom we refer to as the “Greatest Generation”, who lived through a severe economic depression and who fought a war that, if they had failed, would have created a world very unlike what we have today.
