"Story with a Passion"
In 2012, after sharing a number of sea stories with my only grandson, I was told I needed to write a life journal to include my years as a child in the Philippine Islands just following World War II. The journal, which addressed a time from June 7, 1935 to December 28, 2013, includes the important events of my life, including my 27 years in the US Navy. As could be expected, there are more reflections from my years as a naval aviator, flying combat missions in Vietnam and numerous secret missions against the Soviet Union during the Cold War.
When I began writing this book, it was my intent to focus on the military men and women of our country. They are definitely heroes to all of us. In gathering stories, I found there are many ordinary people that are also heroes. This inspired me to expand my vision to include short stories from people of all ages and walks of life who have made a difference. This is the first book, and it starts a series of "Chit Chat Café" worldwide short stories.
