In a few months, a new book will be published that will be a ground-breaking first and a historic milestone. The historic US Army Post - Fort Myer will finally have a book that will herald some of the first one hundred years of its history in word and historic photographs. The effort has been built on a foundation of a decade of walking among and working with some of the finest people - the US military. With two years in research and writing, it will result in a tribute to those who have and are currently creating history on Fort Myer. To all of them and all the others who are serving in the US military, I say: "Thank you for your service and keep on doing what you're doing, 'cause if you're not, we, the American people, can't be doing what we do every day." The book is available for pre-order either directly from the author (an autographed copy) or from Amazon, Barnes & Noble or Borders.
