pioneers as it pictures the adventures of a weatherman and his family
who is taken from the Army Air Corps, to the Air Force, to the Army
Artillery and even to a memorable association with the Marine Corps.
With humor, dignity, and pathos the author takes you to duty locations
in the Midwest, New England, Washington, DC, Saudi Arabia, Bermuda,
and Vietnam. 6X9, hardcover, 345 pages, indexed, over 100 maps,
drawings or photos, some in color. Retail price $24.95, $4.50 for

to see that someone has finally taken the time and effort to tell the
story of a great organization and the folks that comprised the nucleus
of weather forecasting pioneers. You have achieved it with aplomb"
