9781457501142: The Untold Story of One Man and World War II

Fact not fiction - "The Untold Story of One Man and World War 2" is the actual memories of a man from a six-cow dairy farm in Missouri who survived. The printed words bring to life the thoughts, the hopes,the prayers, and the fears and dramatize the personal relationships with shipmates from around the world of one young sailor in a very big war. Leaving a young wife and new son in Texas to journey to St.Petersburg Florida, New Orleans, New York City, Panama, the South Pacific war zone, then back home to San Antonio.

"One man cannot win a war. He can only pray he survives -give it his best effort and hope the home fires will be burning when he comes marching home."
~Horace G. Jackson

Horace G. Jackson(88) kept a daily log during the war recording his daily events as unfolded enabling this story to be told. That was over sixty years ago. He and Theresa had six children. He has traveled from Atlanta to Alaska; always with a gold pan ready to stop where the streams had blacks and to pan for gold. He found beautiful sapphires in an ancient riverbed in Montana. He was inspired to create genuine gemstone jewelry for the ladies in his life. Talents include fishing, wine making, processing a ton of honey from his beehives (in past years), and gardening. Years ago he would pack a pound of hamburger and a can of pork and beans, and go to a sandy beach on Pelican Island. In an iron skillet over a driftwood fire the gourmet dish gave comfort and hope to the fishermen camped there. Now it's called "cowboy delight" and is shared at the family reunion each year in the hill country of Texas where he hosts children and grandchildren from several states for a week of fishing and games. His writings include "The Log Cabin", "The Good Old Days", "The Big Fish", "The Rainbow Trout and Hip Boots", and many more...
