On Laughter-Silvered Wings


From plowing the sandy soil of Lowcountry South Carolina to treating the medical maladies of the farming families of his home county to fighting the secret war in Laos — follow the adventures of Dr. Robert Jackson, a poor farm boy turned medical doctor turned decorated Vietnam War veteran turned patient advocate.

The last words he spoke to his sister Eunice were, “Sis, you fly low and slow. I’ll fly high and fast!” And that he did. He flew higher than most men ever even aspire, and so fast most could not keep up. As one friend observed, “He accomplished more in forty-one years than most of us will in an entire lifetime.”

On Laughter-Silvered Wings records the remarkable life story of a country doctor, a family man, and an American patriot. Take a deep breath. You will be breathless just reading about his exploits.

About the author: Like his father before him, Dr. Robert E. Jackson Jr., dearly loves providing quality and compassionate medical care to his family medicine patients. His patients not only become his friends, but they eventually become like family as the years go by. Just like his dad, he attended Clemson University and the Medical University of South Carolina at Charleston — and again, just like his dad, a devoted Clemson Tiger, his blood runs orange. He is intensely patriotic and equally devoted to his family as the father of nine, grandfather of soon-to-be sixteen grandchildren, and the husband of his beloved wife, Carlotta, for forty-one years. Dr. Jackson is a popular speaker for men’s groups, wildlife banquets, prolife events, and mission seminars. He and his wife have traveled extensively around the world in support of gospel missions. Currently residing in Spartanburg, South Carolina, he continues to work part-time in a rural family medicine clinic in the nearby Grassy Pond community.
