Great Reading Excellent work


(5 stars)

Thank you reader wherever you are but you have the accent of my family heredity. This is a great work which would be of wonderful benefit to anyone who listened to it. I can only reflect of myself that I live within one hour's drive from the old school of which you speak and, although traveling many thousands of miles in my a small part of my life it was only to find combat in a land almost as desolate and much more laid to waste than I believe it has ever been in all it's long and varied history. Having a PhD degree, I am probably the best educated man within many miles of where I live. and, have no one to talk with except my children when I feel well enough from the horrors of those great conflicts for which I am so unwillingly, although so grateful to the men and women who for the most are negroes or African Americans. However, most of them are just thankful to honor a "brother" as we all refer to one another whenever we chance to meet. I do not believe anyone anywhere near where I have lived have ever heard of read of or listened to these wonderful stories. Unless there is someone of which I know little about. Thank you for a wonderful reading of a wonderful book of which I took so much delight in and are also thankful and bless you who are one of whom I would almost immediately recognize as a friend, should we almost improbably never meet in this world. You do not realize as most readers of librivox for which we pay absolutely pay no money and are benefited by so many such as yourself who give of themselves so much of their time for the benefit of others. I guess what I really should have wrote was that I am truly thankful for you and every single volunteer of librivox. who has given so freely and so much of their time and tireless labor for the benefit of a nation once the greatest nation on earth, but, whose moral character, in many parts has given way to distorted and uncharacteristic ideas by many. Thank you and I am proud of being a combat vet and of the nation which has honored me so much.
