In October 2012, I published my memoir, with photos, about my life in the US Army during World War II. The name of that book is The Ghost in General Patton’s Third Army.
Several readers of the book were astonished to find a photo of their family member, or to read about an event that I experienced. These readers suddenly had a “connection” to me and they personally visited me to get more information about their grandfather or other relative. They told me more fascinating stories about that person so I felt compelled to write this sequel with new stories.
The summit of my life story is told in the final chapter, in which the French government celebrated the 75th Anniversary of the liberation of Chartres. At a special ceremony in September 2019, I was awarded the Medal of Chevalier in the Legion of Honor, France’s highest award for merit.
