This man was Rodman Edward "Rod" Serling (December 25, 1924 -- June 28, 1975).

Put through college on the GI Bill, this man becomes a well-known scriptwriter. But at night, in his dreams, the war revisits him. His visions become ever stranger, ever more disturbing.

They drive him to create, and thrust himself into... ''The Twilight Zone''.
