Book launch for ‘Voices From Vietnam: Stories of War’ Is in the Books!

The book launch for Voices From Vietnam: Stories of War in my hometown of Bluffton Indiana is over!

A great group of people showed up at the Wells County Public Library to meet and talk with some of the 18 men featured in this book.

People purchased the book (some purchased copies for Christmas gifts), then mingled among the vets seated at tables around the room for their signatures. That makes each book a valuable item!

Visitors read a story from ‘Voices From Vietnam: Stories of War’ at the launch.

The group was represented by vets from the Air Force, Army, Navy branches. There are also Marine stories in the book.

Some of us don’t fully appreciate the history behind the Vietnam War. It was a devisive factor in American history in so many ways – politically, socially, emotionally.

By putting together a book of stories from vets of this event that occurred half a century ago, I hope to inform people what our vets experienced – and maybe as a byproduct, heal some of those wounds that might still fester.

If you missed this event, don’t fret.

Another opportunity is being planned for you to meet the book’s vets:

November 12, 2022, 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. ET at the downtown Allen County Public Library, Globe Room, 900 Library Plaza, Fort Wayne, IN, 260.421.1200.

It was so much fun to put this event together. I hope it was a blessing to the vets and the people who attended.

Thanks to my friends Beth Steury, Rhonda Maller, Lolly Harter and daughter Mandy Reusser for helping to put this day together:

Wow! Can my friends bake!

Beth and Rhonda baked cookies and helped with book sales.

Lolly distributed the cookies in an attractive manner (I would have not thought of these displays!) and helped keep the trays full.

Mandy Reusser is a trained book launch assistant!

Mandy took these great photos and more!

I could not have done it without them.

Your support means more than you can imagine.

As always, thank a vet for his/her service.
