I grew up in the '50s and '60s, and my father filled our lives with humor, a love of reading and the gift of adventure. The first 10 years of my life seem magical. He was my Yoda - dependable, witty and wise. Then abruptly, Yoda was sidelined when Darth Vader (it seemed) became my stepfather. But Mac never quit being my father - a mentor, teacher and role model.
It wasn't until I had retired and he was gone that I discovered a time capsule, filled with letters, photos, papers, commendations and documents, and learned what a truly remarkable man he was, brave, heroic and determined. Part one of this book takes the reader behind the scenes in understanding the perilous journey young men took in the Pacific War. Part two is about the father I knew and loved. This is his story.

The book is available wherever books are sold. On Amazon.
