Hi Jessica, welcome and thank you for joining us.

I will be adding your grandfather to our 'Hall of Heroes Registry' this weekend. We also have a corresponding photo album, of which, I can add any WWII-era photos of your father. In order to do this, upload those photos to your 'My Photos' app. on your profile. I can then aggregate those to our "Family Members" photo albums.

Just something that we offer if you are interested. Let me know if you have any questions!  Scott Lyons

Stay the Rising Sun

By PHIL KEITH

The publication date is 1 May 2015 »

Please join us Thursday evening, April 9th 2015 in the 'Victory at Sea: U.S. Navy, Coast Guard & Merchant Marine' group. We have ten (10) copies reserved for us by our great friend Nichole Schiele and business partner Zenith Press.

From Zenith Press: "In May 1942, the United States' first first naval victory against the Japanese in the Coral Sea was marred by the loss of the aircraft carrier USS Lexington. Another carrier was nearly ready for launch when the news arrived, so the navy changed her name to Lexington, confusing the Japanese."

Gallipoli

By ALAN MOOREHEAD

Available now from Aurum Press »

Please join us Thursday evening, April 23rd in the 'The First World War' group. We have ten (10) copies reserved for us by our good friend Nichole Schiele at Aurum Press and Zenith Press.

From Aurum Press: "A century has now gone by, yet the Gallipoli campaign of 1915-16 is still infamous as arguably the most ill conceived, badly led and pointless campaign of the entire First World War. The brainchild of Winston Churchill, then First Lord of the Admiralty, following Turkey's entry into the war on the German side, its ultimate objective was to capture the Gallipoli peninsula in western Turkey, thus allowing the Allies to take control of the eastern Mediterranean and increase pressure on the Central Powers to drain manpower from the vital Western Front."

Hidden Warships

By NICHOLAS A. VERONICO

The publication date is 5 June 2015 »

Please join us Thursday evening, May 7th 2015 in the 'Victory at Sea: U.S. Navy, Coast Guard & Merchant Marine' group. We have ten (10) copies reserved for us by our great friend Nichole Schiele and business partner Zenith Press.

From Zenith Press: "World War II produced many epic naval battles and technologies. The many resulting shipwrecks from this immense war unintentionally created a record of new warfighting technologies that today's armchair explorers and shipwreck hunters can participate in.

Lt. Col. Robert Hite, of 'Doolittle Tokyo Raiders,' dead at 95

I had the honor of meeting him and some of his fellow Raiders a few years ago. Very humble men. I also read a book about the Raiders who were captured, tortured and killed by the  Japanese. Very horrifying, but at the end, for those who survived,…See More

West Point 1915 is a fun, easy read, offering a lot of entertaining anecdotes about Eisenhower, Bradley and the other graduates of West Point's class of 1915. In West Point 1915, author Michael Haskew does a fine job of weaving the stories of the…See More
