This month's Salute features Pat McGrath Avery's interview with William McGinley -- a World War II veteran who was reported KIA -- but is still alive and kicking more than 60 years after his adventure hiding from the Nazis in Belgium. Columnist Feather Schwartz Foster introduces John Adams -- the father of the Navy. Lloyd King discusses the history of the Medal of Honor. Chris Avery reviews Ron Greer's book, Fire From the Sky: A Diary Over Japan, the story of his father's exploits during World War II. Colleen Tucker's charming memoir, "Everlasting Memories" takes us back to the days when everyone leaned into the harness together. Mary Nida Smith focuses on the Sea Fox and it's role during the Korean War.
Since so many of our readers enjoy the Branson Night Life (and morning and afternoon life), we've decided to offer reviews of the shows from time to time. This month we review a new act -- SIX. Poet Rudy Garcia's moving verse "M.I.A." is a must read. Don't forget cartoonist Lloyd King's Beans & Frank.
Also, Hodge Wood announces the publication of the first book in his Sharks on Wounded Fish Series, "Chum Water". It's a wonderful read -- and a sobering one.
I hope you enjoy.
