Those that went through the museum and stopped at my table were a great bunch of people–I visited with folks from across America, England, France and Australia. The Shoot Down cover was a favorite among men; some of the women thought I had been an astronaut from the helmet. “Nope, that’s just a fighter pilot’s helmet with my spyplane imaged in the visor.” The nice people who picked up and bought No Need to Know were buying them for Father’s Day gifts. I provided special dedications and autographed each book, and even had my picture taken with several youngsters.
Met a number of military men and women, some Navy Cadets from the Navy League out of New Jersey if I recall correctly, and I met some of the spouses and parents of our guys and ladies in uniform. No police officers or Boy Scouts but I did spend some time with the former Skipper of the USS Ticonderoga. he said he looked like Bill Clinton. I didn’t see it. All in all, some very good young people and old patriots, and all fine Americans.
As always a hat tip to the Museum employees who helped make it all possible. They were always professional and helpful, and took great care of me. I never ran out of water and we didn’t run out of books–but it was a very good day. Again, thank you and I hope to be back in a month!
