Today we celebrate Father’s Day here in the United States. A day set aside to honor our fathers.
I called my father this morning and told him I appreciated him. And because of my friend and Diamond Club Member Steve Ulrich’s idea to give his father a book, I’m doing the same thing. The book is Wisdom of Our Fathers: Lessons and Letters from Daughters and Sons by Tim Russert.
My father wrote a book a few years ago—which we published—about his aviation career, his experiences as a B-17 pilot, his shoot down, capture and surviving as a POW during WWII. It might be a little late for Father’s Day, but if your dad is interested in WWII history and/or aviation, you might want to get him a copy. The book is called Ready or Not! Into the Wild Blue. It’s available here.
