[October 25, 2021] This past Saturday, I conducted a book signing at a local restaurant, the beautiful Historic Smithville Inn. Thanks to owner Tony Coppola for granting permission for and hosting this event. My wife and I had a great time and met many new people, several veterans, and saw many friends and neighbors.
The event’s success is credited to my wife, Nancy. Thanks, Nancy! It was a pleasure to be with her all afternoon as we spoke to many people from all walks of life. It is amazing the stories we heard.
Marco Polo Smigliani stopped by to say hello. He is in my book’s acknowledgments, a Vietnam War veteran and was awarded four Purple Heart Medals for injuries resulting from combat with the enemy. I was honored to have him and many others share their stories or those of their parents. What a fabulous day.
Thanks to all who came by and to those who helped make this book signing a success.
Please read my newest book, “Our Longest Year in Iraq,” at Amazon (link here).
General Satterfield has written an easy reading story on the 8+ year war in Iraq. Our Longest Year in Iraq may not be a best seller but it will help change enough minds to make a difference.
Wow, see what I missed, Gen. Satterfield had a book signing and I missed it. Well done and congratulations. I went out a few minutes ago and bought your book, “Our Longest Year in Iraq.” Now, I’m waiting for it to arrive and the sequel.
Good to see you back Yes, congrats to Gen. Satterfield for his book and for the success with his book signing.
Great news for all of us. We are big fans of yours, Gen. Satterfield. Keep up the work you are doing for us and for the next generation.
Congratulations, you have a beautiful wife.
I know that you did not have any idea who well or not well this book signing event would go for you at the local restaurant near you. It does, however, take a lot of planning and methodical thinking to create such an event. I know that you can look on the Internet for ideas. But in the end, it takes work to pull it off. With you and your wife Nancy working as a team, you did it. And, you and Nancy are to be congratulated for the true success.
Yes, it was a lot of work and, of course, he didn’t get paid for it. Just got a few bucks from the sales. This is what hard work brings. And, it includes risks, too.
Thank you sir. You are to be congratulated.
I’ll thank your wife Nancy. Thanks Nancy.
Yep, thanks to Nancy, the event was what Gen. Satterfield wanted. I hear that the turnout was pretty good.
Another success for you and your wife. Well done!
Yes, congratulations. 👍👍👍👍👍
Great news of the book signing success. I hope you do more. It helps get the word out on what really happened in the Iraq War and not from some ivory tower “woke” historian who sees the world thru Marxist ideology.
Right, and I’m glad that we were a part of Gen. Satterfield’s success story.
Yes, maybe one could be done by me. Or, not. I live in the land of the fruits and nuts, California. No way Gen. Satterfield will come out here.
If there was some assurance that he would be treated properly and the venue was sufficient, then I think he would go. Gen. Satterfield doesn’t fear those fruits and nuts. Like we all should be, real men, not sissy men like all our senior politicians today. Yes, they are sissy men. Wearing their pink hats and women’s underwear, they are disgusting.
I was thinking along those same lines. Gen. Satterfield has no fear.
Congrats to you and your wife. Looks like you did have a great time. What an honor.
Yes, well done and congrats to Gen. Satterfield and his wife Nancy.
