In February, Chuck and I hosted five WWII veterans of the USS Nevada for a reunion in Las Vegas. We had a grand time with them and people and organizations around the valley were very generous with their time and intentions to make the event a memorable one. Chuck's documentary, Battleship Nevada premiered at the SouthPoint Theaters. We made the front page of the Las Vegas Review Journal.
This month, we honored a WWII vet in Aberdeen SD (we summer here in South Dakota). Chuck premiered his film USS Hadley One Hundred Minutes in Hellfire which is now up on Youtube. (Click the title for the link). We had representatives from both SD senators, a representative of the SD Congresswoman, the mayor of Aberdeen. The governor's office proclaimed September 7, 2016 Dell Burt Hall Day in South Dakota. Chuck was on the news and again the event made the front page of the local paper.
I say all this because what we do matters to these veterans. Of course, these are the few who are left who represent our "Greatest Generation."
I'll post this weekend about my current novel I'm working on. In the meantime, check me out on Facebook for more current updates. https://www.facebook.com/TamaraEatonNovels/
