As your author has been publishing HANCOCK NEWS, an internet news medium for Hancock County, Indiana, in recent days, an avalanche of deaths of World War II veterans has become apparent. That of a gentleman named Robert Edwards precipitated this book. The sad fact is that the boys and girls who served in World War H are dying off fast. Our concern is that their memory may also be forgotten. This book is intended to recall what we still can about the events during the days of World War II.


On a recent Doe Creek Elementary School day trip to Washington D.C. 8th grader Andrea Sanders took the  photo to the left of the famous Iwo Jima statute which says exactly what this series is about.
