After reading the Miller Family’s first volume OF SOLDIERS’ STORIES, I was excited to receive Volume # 2. I was not disappointed.
Not only was I, as usual, proud to see 4 pages of my own Father’s stories in print, but even discovered another member of the 11th Airborne Division represented among the other memoirs.
Most of my readers tell me that they find the personal stories and letters from my father and other veterans to be their favorite posts. In this book, readers are privileged to have over 300 pages of such tales.
The many photographs give you a personal perspective, both humorous and educational, of a time that dramatically altered the entire world. Men and women alike are included in this well constructed journal for the generation we are so quickly losing.
Every branch of service, in each theater of operation, is represented along with the invaluable contributions of the home front military, women, civilians and our British Allies.
Modern day honoring of those buried in foreign lands and innumerable photos of the people who fought for us and the treasures they left behind. Even fellow blogger and author, Joy Neal Kidney, has the Wilson Family included.
You can hear in their words the eagerness to serve their country, their laughter and the camaraderie of close unit ties. You might even feel their pain.
Inspired by the Miller Family’s, SSgt. Myron Miller, of the 83rd Infantry, I can unquestionably recommend both Volume # 1 and # 2 of SOLDIERS’ STORIES!

Here is my own review of Volume II of Soldiers’ Stories.
Excellent choice for a guest blogger today!
He’s a gem, isn’t he!
I can’t figure out why there are black places on the post today, when things look great in what came through in the email. hmmm
I didn’t see those!
