ZARBUL MASALHA: 151 Afghan Dari Proverbs by active duty U.S. Navy Captain Edward Zellem which won the Gold Medal for Reference was one of the many highlights in the Military Writers Society of America (MWSA) 2013 book awards ceremony held this year in Dayton, Ohio. The MWSA book awards recognize outstanding military-themed books in a wide range of categories from children to adult. The categories include fiction, non-fiction, spiritual/religious, poetry, business/how to, and others. Entries included works published in traditional and e-book formats.
Operation Inherent Resolve conducted eight airstikes today in Iraq and Syria. The press release is fairly boilerplate, describing the general geographical area, results, and participating coalition countries. While releases of this nature are often seen as ho-hum routine, the public needs to know that they are NOT routine, and the men and women involved are under tremendous pressure and putting themselves at great risk. That they make it look routine is a testament to their professionalism. If you or your circle wish to know what it is like, my novel RAVEN ONE can shed light.
In his new book, Solitary Vigilance, Tim Drake, author of Inherited Freedom, brings to life Allen Voigt and his twenty years of military service. This is a must read for anyone passionate about all things World War II, American patriotism and history. A story of individual sacrifice, perseverance and determination are vividly outlined on each and every page.
Fascinating story of an 1830's era cop chasing down a suspected murderer fleeing across what was then the U.S. and parts of the Indian Territories.
