Grace Anne had the honor of volunteering today at Ramstein Elementary's Deployment Buddies end of the year picnic. She was able to share her books, deployment tips and talk with kiddos who currently have a deployment parent. There were around 60 attending the event including the elementary students, high school 'bigs', parents and volunteers. What fun we had together encouraging and learning their stories today. Ramstein Enlisted Spouses Association (RESA) sponsored us and gave each Deployment Buddy a signed copy of the book to take home!
Colonel Don Price has written an excellent account of some little known heroic events of the Vietnam War. "The First Marine Captured in Vietnam-The Biography of Donald G. Cook," is first what the title states and much, much more. Price blends big picture history with the details of Cook’s life from his birth until he was captured in Vietnam.
