My wife and I were trapped between Tangiers and Madrid on 9/11. Our experiences motivated me to write a story not only about the tragedy of that day, but how we as a nation need to regain our patriotism and can-do spirit if we are to pass on our freedoms and opportunities to future generations.

We veterans served for numerous reasons and left the service with some expectations. In my post military and post college years, I have learned that most Americans are functionally illiterate when it comes to civics and the economic activities of their communities. Improving this knowledge is essential to our economic futures. Please join me in the effort. I have written Community Economic Literacy and created the AMERICAN PIE seminar to address the problem.
