Every RVer started out in a tent in the wilds of this great nation even if it was only in in their own backyard. As RVers, we endure the difficulties of the camping and RVing because we love it and would have it no other way, regardless of the outcome. Besides the worst camping and RVing experience is better than the best day at work! Why do we do this? Because we are RVers and we are nuts!

Kathy Rodgers' THE FINAL SALUTE #1 Amazon's Top-rated War Fiction based on customer reviews

After years of rejections, numerous revisions and too many roadblocks to mention, I am happy to report that my novel, THE FINAL SALUTE, Together We Live On, has made it to #1 on Amazon's Top-rated War Fiction based on customer reviews.

I am grateful to every single reader who took the time to post a review or tell a friend about my book. Many thanks to MWSA for believing in my story enough to award it a Silver Medal in 2009.

Title: In the Shadow Of a Badge
Author: Lillie Leonardi
Genre: Spiritual/Religious
Reviewer: Dick Hrebik

ISBN (links go to the MWSA Amazon store): 1595717390

It is a narrative non-fiction, first-hand account of the spiritual experience
Lillie encountered while serving in her professional capacity as the
Community Outreach Specialist with the Federal Bureau of Investigation,
Pittsburgh Division.

The book reflects her story of the visitation of Angels in the initial
moments at the Flight 93 crash site in Shanksville, Pennsylvania and her
personal interpretation of the historic facts leading up to and following the
events of September 11, 2001.

Lillie's memoir also details her subsequent diagnosis of Post Traumatic
Stress Disorder (PTSD) and her on-going journey to heal and recover from its effects. Through the reconciliation of heart, mind, body and soul, her
trauma ultimately led to triumph by providing the catalyst needed to regain
her voice through writing.
