Veterans Week in Branson

Veterans Week is in full swing. I love displaying my books at Veterans Village. As people walk through, they stop and share their stories. Today I met a man who was one of the Chosin Few in Korea and a woman whose dad served in the Aleutian Islands during WWII. She was searching for a veteran who served there at the same time. I connected her with Roy Lee.

Roy enlisted when he was fourteen. I love to listen to his stories because his recall of events is superb.

Several people asked about the Sunchon The survivors didn't make it this year but Eddie will be back in town tomorrow. One gentleman turned out to be a close friend of Florence Kuhn, a member of the Sharon Rogers band.

All in all, a good day. I look forward to tomorrow.
