...In Remembrance

The best way to honor Memorial's Day is by reading a book written about the sacrifices service members have made for America. Many books written in this vein are out there.

Below is a collection of accounts told from up top, to the foot patrols; from the air to the ground; from Independent presses, to self-published, and traditional press. From anointed best-seller lists to the 'needle in a haystack' gems. All I highly regard and recommend.

Fate is the Hunter by Ernest K. Gann
The Second Tour (2nd edition…note: I read the 1st edition) by Terry P. Rizzuti
SitRep Negative: A Year In Vietnam by G. J. Lau
Dear America: Letters Home from Vietnam by Bernard Edelman
Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell with Patrick Robinson
Until Tuesday by Luis Carlos MontalvΓ‘n with Bret Witter
Ghost Army of World War II by Jack Kneece

...And I'm adding to my to-read list The Forgotten 500 by Gregory A. Freeman; On Call in Hell by Cdr. Richard Jadick and Thomas Hayden; and I’m really searching for a book about the Tuskegee Airmen’s personal rememberances and flying experiences. Hopefully Freedom Flyers by J. Todd Moye is that book!
