I was delighted to have my son, Scott, join me at the National WWII Museum in NOLA as they featured my and Mike Yorkey’s book about my father’s exploits in WWII, At First Light: A True World War II Story of a Hero, His Bravery, and an Amazing Horse on Tuesday, January 10, during a special “Meet the Author” event. You can watch my interview here.
Scott and I had a memorable tour of the museum and its amazing exhibits. Here we stopped with a gentleman who befriended my dad and is a character in the book. Hint, after the war he became our 34th U.S. President.
Scott also caught me in a sacred moment of contemplation as I studied a Sherman tank – just like the one my father was shot on near the end of the war losing his leg.
Here are a couple of shots Scoot took dureing the presentation. You can watch the conversation here.
Although this all was a terrific privilege and honor, the best part was having a couple of days with one of my very best friends, my son.
