Recent Book Presentation to Prisoner of War Veterans Group

This last Tuesday, November 19th,  Chuck and I had the distinct honor and privilege to talk about The Brothers’ Keepers to an audience of Prisoner of War Veterans and their wives at the William Field VA Center in Mesa.  I say honored because most if not all of the attendees were members of the greatest generation of the Twentieth Century . . . that is, those that experienced and survived both the depression and the Second World War.  I continue to be in awe of their tenacity and bravery.   I think that these folks enjoyed our presentation, mostly because many could relate so closely to the events of the book, which was set primarily in the 1930s and 1940s.  There were many comments and questions during the session and I think that the book also gave the veterans somewhat of an idea of what was going on in America while they were away at war.  I truly believe the people of that unique generation need our undying gratitude for their service and sacrifices, especially those that experienced the terrors of being prisoners of war.
