Vickie Springabout this book: My desire was to complete a manuscript for the Veterans History Project sponsored and housed in the Library of Congress. The Library of Congress is part of the Smithsonian Institute located in Washington, D.C.
I traveled to several places throughout the United States to locate 13 men who served with my father in the Korean War. I wanted to document their stories and capture their emotions on video for their family and future generations to come. This was a project that I wanted to do for my father and his buddies. To my surprise, these men and their experiences were far more than what I thought they would be. I shared tears and smiles with each and every one of them.
I am an International Service Manager with a major U.S. Airline, so this four year project was my second job. This book is near and dear to my heart and I only touched a few of the many stories. We should all be greatful and give back to these men and women and their sacrifices made for their country.
