$3.50
Size: 8.5" x 11"
Binding: Perfect Bound
In 2014 while the author was preparing a monograph about his father-in-law’s farming experience, the family mentioned that he had been held briefly as a POW in the weeks shortly after crossing Omaha Beach in June 1944. Regretfully that information – a brief, but significant, detail of his lengthy military service – was not shared until long after his death in 1986, so first-hand details were unavailable. If there was to be a more detailed story, the author was determined to pursue the details. In November 2019, while researching S/SGT John Edgar Scott’s unconfirmed appearance in the iconic June 1944 photo of soldiers climbing through the E-1 draw in Easy Red sector of Omaha Beach, the au ...
Exhilarating Drudgery on the Appalachian Trail Regis Carr

It will come as no surprise that I did not wake up one morning and start hiking the Appalachian Trail. The decision was a bit more deliberative and this book captures most of the details of how I made the decision and then how I planned the adventure. The bulk of the book is a collection of blogs I wrote each afternoon or evening – almost without fail. The blog format was the result of a friend’s interest in following my trek. Had he not expressed that interest, this book, if written, would have been at best a collection of notes occasionally entered on an iPhone – or worse, on a pad of paper. Without writing the blog, the thru-hike would have had a different measure of satisfaction.

After the war, he returned home to Texas and reunited with his wife, Vivian. Over the next 14 years they established new homes as the Army and Air Force sent Edgar to new postings. Then, with 19 years of honorable, military service Edgar chose a new path to success – one that would raise the level of challenge and bring g ...

PFC Ottis Earl Sudduth WWII Replacement Soldier In the spring of 2022, Ottis Earl Sudduth’s niece, Penny, contacted the author concerning information posted to a genealogy website that he managed. In one of the several emails they exchanged, an apparent discrepancy was noted in the number of months that her uncle PFC Ottis Earl Sudduth spent as a POW during WWII. In the process of resolving the discrepancy (5-months vs. 9-months) they discovered more detail about her Uncle Earl than either anticipated possible so long after his death in 1984. As the author crafted biographical notes to add to his website, it became clear that there was enough information for a story – however brief. ...
