My aunt, Marcia Gates, was one of those. Captured by the Japanese on Corregidor in the Philippines, she became a prisoner-of-war. Interned in a makeshift POW camp, she endured captivity, endured starvation, endured life-threatening medical issues. She endured. I wonder how many of us could do the same?
To commemorate Memorial Day and my aunt's own quiet courage, the ebook of her story is on sale for just 99 cents through May 31, 2019.
In addition, the audio book is also available, and the narration by Adrianne Price gives the story a heartrending poignancy.
The stories of the Greatest Generation must not be forgotten. Their sacrifices must not be forgotten. Please join me in remembering these courageous patriots on this Memorial Day. They fought to keep our country free--and our world.
