Bruce Henderson draws on personal
interviews with surviving veterans and extensive archival research to
bring this never-before-told chapter of the World War II to light. Sons and Soldiers
traces their stories from childhood and their escapes from Nazi
Germany, through feats and sacrifices during the war, to desperate
attempts to find missing loved ones in war-torn Europe. It is an epic
story of heroism, courage, and patriotism that will not be forgotten.
John Harper served 21 years in the Air
Force. His final assignment was at Dover Air Force Base, where he served
with the Dental Evidence Response Team at the Port Mortuary. He
documented those years of service in "Among The Dead; My Years in the Port Mortuary."
It details the years following 9/11 which involved forensics dental
examinations on those killed in the Pentagon, and the thousands of
fallen heroes returning from the battlefields of Iraq. He provides an
inside look at how exposure to human remains affected the team, and
their personal battles with post-traumatic stress disorder. The teams'
efforts were always directed by dignity, honor, and respect.
