All I can say about Ray's Book is, it gets right to the matter of things, it gives a perspective on the war and love between two people, as well as their families. My 18 year old daughter read it the day I got it from Ray, it made a heck of an impression on her and she found out there are people just like us behind the lines, so to speak. It should be required reading for kids, it gives a great insight, and has for myself. It is very enlightening. Thank you Ray.
