Thanks to the Museum of Military History


I want to thank Don Smith, SGT McCloud, and Ron Esser of the Museum of Military History in Kissimmee, Florida for a terrific experience during the author signing event on Saturday, September 17, 2016.

I sold a few books and met many veterans of America’s wars as well as several other book authors. The museum was courteous to us and also gave us a great lunch. Interacting with young Americans and other members of the public was rewarding as always. Their support of America’s warriors is appreciated by all of us.

The best part of the whole day was meeting fellow veterans, especially those members of the Greatest Generation who fought in World War II. They truly saved the world.

I look forward to similar events in the future.
