Subject: Meeting you at McClellan
Hi, my name is Stefan and I am 12 years old. I met you at the museum
day at McClellan Aerospace museum. You and your wife were meeting people and
selling your book, WWII Prisoner of War: How I Survived. My mom bought your book and I just finished reading it. I really liked it. In your book I tried to understand
how really cold you were when you marched from camp to camp. It must have
been scary when the planes flew over you. I think it is good that you kept
your promise to God. When I grow up I want to be a pilot also.
The book was so good that I want to read it again, and my sisters and mom
are reading it also.
Thank you for writing your memories,
P.S. I have a really good picture of you and me and my sisters. Do you have
an address I could send it to? Ill try to send it here.
This mail is sent via contact form on WWII POW – How I Survived
