Foreword
Senator Bob Dole
901 15th Street, N.W.
Suite 410
Washington, D.C. 20005
"Donald Brown has written an outstanding book that will quickly become required reading for anyone interested in World War II, or the 10th Mountain Division. While serving as a "Thank You" to the many Americans who helped Don along the way, it also relates many wonderful and moving human interest stories about the 10th Mountain Division - a fraternity I know a little something about.
Because Don is also an accomplished journalist, he has seamlessly woven his words, memories and deeds in such a way as to create a living and breathing memorial to all he served with, and all who are fortunate enough to read this work.
Donald Brown is a patriot, a friend, and a gifted writer, and I highly recommend this tribute to a simpler time."
--Senator Bob Dole
