I roll over all the possibilities and alternatives in my mind until I fall asleep. If I get lucky, the answer comes in a dream. If not, we do it all over the next night. However, until we are writing again, we always recycle the slack writing time with research or reading.(less)

I've befriended many veterans of World War II at reunions and reenactment events. They have inspired me and made my life immeasurably more meaningful. Each and every on of them has enriched me and my heart breaks each time one of them pass on. But they have touched me along with everyone else and I could not imagine what my life would have been had I not known them. (less)

Revenge of the Pearl Harbor Survivors (History)
1 chapters   —   updated Dec 26, 2012 01:45PM
Description: 2011 commemorated 70 years since the December 7 attack of Pearl Harbor. All of the American aircraft carriers survived that assault. This 45-page, 15,000-word article explains why and also how the outnumbered U.S. Navy effectively thwarted Japan's aggression in the Pacific despite huge losses. By bravely confronting Japanese forces until newly built reinforcements could arrive, the surviving carriers and their courageous sailors and airmen exacted a true measure of revenge for Pearl Harbor. This is their story.

John Nevola Let us all humbly remember, as we start out on this Memorial Day Weekend, just exactly what it stands for. It's not the start of the summer season, a three-day weekend, BBQ or the huge store sales. It is meant to commemorate and honor those who have fallen so others may enjoy the freedoms we have. In respectful honor of those fallen, THE LAST JUMP eBook will be FREE on Amazon.com on Memorial Day, 26 May 2014. So take a moment and reflect on what they have sacrificed to preserve our liberty and our future.
SHARE this. It's our gift to all.

John Nevola I would like to announce The Last Jump blog dedicated to the men and women who served our country in uniform and particularly those who won WWII. From time to time I will post a short article about the special people who stood on the wall while others slept. Join us and share your opinion about our exceptional country and those who served her.
