It is absolutely wonderful that Paul Goebel wanted to document and honor his father's experience through this book: The 224th Anti-Aircraft Artillery Searchlight Battalion: A WWII Unit History.

It reminds me of the many first-hand stories that veterans have shared with me, many of which will never be recorded. Thank you Paul for putting this in print!
