This crazy idea of a book had to come to an end eventually, might as well do it at the start of a new year.
If you read this book two-months ago or more, I encourage you to give it another shot. Once it became obvious that I wouldn’t have the funds for a top-tier editor (about $5k for my 130,049 words) and when I saw the plethora of errors, I decided to make a concerted effort to edit the book myself. I’m sure there are still enough errors that could disappoint my educated and dedicated readers, let alone embarrassment to me. But it is my best today. So, it is all on me, warts included. Next time I decide to write a free book, I will ask for donations.
My book covers my life through Oct. 2020, no news after that. Although I did update some deaths from early 2021 of main characters vital to my story. The remainder of 2021 I edited, and tightened up many of the narratives, and recalled some episodes, buried in my memory, that added fervent, especially to the Combat chapters.
To my dear readers: I appreciate you for taking the ride with me, during this three-year journey, and for that, I will forever be grateful. You were the catalyst that motivated me to finish the story; the story, that I promised myself and others five decades ago.
Don done, and out. (Jan. 7, 2022) Thank you, Thank you very much.
