Veteran's Day Celebration

It's always a pleasure to honor our vets in November, to set aside this month, this day, 11/11, to remember their names and their stories, their sacrifices and their successes. It is for that very reason that I wrote this book about my aunt, an army nurse from Wisconsin who became entangled in the largest conflict the world had ever known. Approximately 1100 World War II vets die every day, and with them go their stories. I didn't want my aunt's story to be lost along with so many others. We need to remember--need to remember--the horror, the heartache, the heroism in order to work toward peace. To work toward this never happening again.

So in honor of Veteran's Day, I've put the ebook version of Marcia Gates: Angel of Bataan on sale for just 99 cents.  

Here is just one of many gratifying reviews of the book:

Nurse Gates' amazing valor and her mother's drive reminds us to never forget the human dimension of combat. A reminder indeed that loved ones suffer as much at home as those on the battlefields. Inspirational. 
Her spirit came alive on the pages of this factual account of her Japanese captivity.

I hope you'll join me in honoring our vets, whoever and wherever they may be, during this week. Let them know in whatever way we can, that we remember.

The Kindle version is on sale this week, through November 12, 2017, 
and it's always free with Kindle Unlimited.

And by the way, if you're near Stoughton, WI, stop by the new Veteran's Park. There's a memorial to Marcia Gates, along with many other Wisconsin vets.
