Today is Veterans Day and we honor those who served our country. How will you honor those who fought? Who do you honor? How will I be honoring the day? I’m giving my Finishing the Story lecture at Casa Italia today and will share the stories of Michael Kokoska, WWI; Frankie Winkler, WWII; and Robert Brouk Flying Tiger and WWII Army Air Corps Captain.

Who are some of the veterans I honor today?

Michael Kokoska, Frankie Winkler, Robert Brouk, Ginny Davis, Fred Davis, Harvey Davis, James Privoznik, Emil Ratay, Joseph Holik, Joseph Ratay, Frank Kokoska, “Captain Jack” John Frank Zajicek, Thomas Holik, Richard Holik, Robert Holik, Joseph Holik Jr., William Kokaska, Edward Kokaska, Ralph Windler.

How else am I honoring my veterans? In January I will release two new books. Stories of the Lost and The Tiger’s Widow telling the stories of Michael Kokoska, Frankie Winkler, Robert Brouk, and James Privoznik, who died in service. The second book will talk about the life of Robert Brouk’s widow after their short marriage and his death. Both will be released in January 2014 and soon after I will release new lectures and workshops and be available for Book Talks at libraries and societies and more presentations. Stay tuned for more details. You will not want to miss this dual book launch.
