"Not a Canadian but wanted to give you a "thumbs up" and encourage you to continue with this project, Tony. I think it's very cool and it could start productive discussions about nationality traits in all aspects of small unit…"
"I agree, Eric - just finished it this evening. I appreciated the depth into which the author went - it kept one from simply dismissing the traitor's act out of hand - one could really begin to understand what he was going through and what…"

"Just finished "Rescue of Streetcar 304: A Navy Pilot's Forty Hours on the Run in Laos" by the shot-down pilot - Kenny Wayne Fields. His research included interviews over the years with nearly every other pilot involved so it's…"
