I finished your book last night and I have
to say it was one of the best I have ever read.
Never mind War and Peace or the Odyssey.
I learned so much from reading all of
your experiences, and of your honest
and well founded opinions of MacArthur and Roosevelt.
You certainly gave us a lot to think about,
and so many examples of what it takes to survive--not just the kind of war that you went through, but all
of life's battles. And aren't there a bunch of them.
It wasn't just luck that brought you through all of that hellish misery. It seems you used all of your many talents and abilities to help you fight your
way to victory. Can you read this megasentence?

Thank you for sharing your stories with us. There is no thanking you and your comrades enough for all you went through. The book was fascinationg from the first to the very last page. We will read it again for further discussion.
JD do you still enjoy pansit and adobo? Would you and Linda like to come down here for some of Mac's best pansit one Sunday afternoon? We have Babalik Ka Rin on a CD. Let us know--We'd be honored to welcome you to Emerald Cove. Love to you both--
