I know it’s been a long time since you’ve heard from me by e-mail. We are all fine. The kids are back in school and working so they are busy. Joan is always moving cleaning houses, our house and taking care of all of us. She is like an Eveready Bunny and just keeps going.
I wanted to let you know of a couple things. First off, today, the third Friday of September, which happens to be the 21st this year, is set aside as a recognition day for our POW/MIAs. There is going to be a ceremony at the National Cemetery here in Hawaii that I plan to attend.
The other thing I wanted to tell you is that I have completed writing a book about our finding an Australian bomber in Papua New Guinea that had been missing for 66 years that had a crew of 4 who were listed as Missing In Action.
If you’re interested in reading it, here is the website for ordering.
If you do buy a copy, I would appreciate hearing from you and what you thought of it. I can make changes to it too if you find misspelling or other issues. I have reviewed it at least 100 times but even tonight I found 2 issues. I’m sure there are more so if you see any, please let me know so I can clean it up.
I’m working on having it available on Kindle and once it’s ready, I’ll let you know. There are 150 pictures in it and if you have Kindle Fire or an I-phone, the pictures come out in color which is pretty neat.
One thing you can do to help me with getting the word out is to tell all your friends and if you have facebook, you could announce it there as well.
Another thing you could do is to put a suggestion in the box at Sam’s and Costco saying you’d like to recommend the book be sold at their stores.
You may have some ideas of your own. Anything you can do I would sure be grateful for. I’m having it reviewed to see if it can be sold at the USS Arizona Memorial and Pacific Aviation Museum gift shops. If it does get approved, I will be able to sit there and sign the book.
Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you. Enjoy the read!
