Every time I see the pic for this group, I think "Ark of the Covenant? We don't have many people asking for those. Twenty bucks is the best I can do."

My dad was at Pearl Harbor on 12/07/41, he was 23. Fortunately he survived with no injuries,  he was Army infantry. He was in for the duration, didn't come home until we dropped the bomb on Japan.  My dad emmigrated to the US from Italy at the age of 8, became a citizen, and joined up early in 1941.

My father was 18 in 1941.  He, his two brothers, and four of my great uncles all joined a few months later.  My father started off as a tail-gunner on B-24 bombers, one of his brothers and my four great uncles were all Army infantry and one uncle was an anti-tank gunner.   Happily, all returned from direct combat action, and all were very happy we A-bombed Japan and they could go home.

Don't you Remember,
The Fifth of November,
'Twas Gunpowder Treason Day,
I let off my gun,
And made'em all run.
And Stole all their Bonfire away!

Has it been a YEAR since someone posted here????

Last month, I gave two decently attended lectures based upon my graduate work.  I would like to transform my research into a book.  However, I don't want to root myself in academia.  Can anyone recommend good popular publishers to whom I I could submit a book proposal?
