Each year I speak to hundreds of people of all ages about my interviews with 250+ WWII vets, the books I’ve written about their military experiences and my 10-day WWII Tour of Europe.
It includes photos of Omaha Beach, foxhole used in Battle of the Bulge, Paris and Notre Dame’s lovely interior—now lost! I share how sobering it was to tour Dachau and see an actual courtroom used in the Nuremberg war trials, and more.
I am the proud wife/mother of Air Force airmen. Interviewing veterans and writing and telling their stories are part of my efforts to preserve our national military heritage and support the military.
