[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.
