This is an amazing and inspiring book. I was overwhelmed by some of the stories, including the experiences of civilians. The story of Vivian Linn Morrow (referenced above) who lost a dearly loved young husband was a poignant, amazing story. Thanks to Dr Saylor for preserving these stories before these people, and their memories, are gone.
