A Lookback into the Sacrifices of the Fervent Hearts and Unyielding Patriotism of World War II Veterans

The Great Depression and World War II through the eyes of Unsung Heroes

Springfield, OR – WEBWIRE

World War II is often called the defining moment of the Twentieth Century. The bloody clash between the Allied Forces and Axis Powers left a devastating death toll. In its wake, the war produced sixty million casualties. The Axis Powers led by Nazi Germany and Japanese Empire was determined to exact their anti-Semitic movement and gain dominion over all the countries of the world, including the United States of America. If not for the bravery and gallantry of the veterans who fought for our freedom, we would have lost the freedom we dearly love but too often take for granted. During the war, over 16,000,000 Americans served in the U.S. Armed Forces and unfortunately, over 408,000 died and over 670,000 wounded. These heroes stared death in the face with the determination to protect their home country and its freedom.
Being a baby boomer and born to a father who served his country with the Eighth Air Force, 91st Bomb Group, 323rd Squadron as a radio operator on a B-17 Flying Fortress, Michael Pungercar felt a special connection with World War II veterans. He truly saw the need to show everyone what these heroes are deserving of. In his book, “It Has Been My Honor,” Pungercar will take us on a tour of the past and rekindle the dying flame of patriotism in the hearts of what has been called the “Greatest Generation” of Americans.
Michael Pungercar, with heartfelt sincerity, delivers the memories of five veterans who had experienced The Great Depression and fought during World War II. His book is a recollection of the experiences of Seaman David Russell, U.S. Navy—U.S.S. Oklahoma, Lt. Alton Andrews, 391st Bomb Group, U.S. Army Air Corps, PFC Rayphord Tiffee, 147th Regiment, U.S. Army, Seaman Edward Johann, U.S. Navy—U.S.S. Wright, and Pvt. Edwin Baker, 182nd Infantry Regiment, U.S. Army.
The recollections will certainly inspire patriotism, and courage. Pungercar effectively reconciled historical facts and real-life accounts of heroism and courage. He was able to tell a story in a way that motivates and educates. He effectively crossed a vivid message and a call-to-action for everyone to give more value and importance to these heroes who are sometimes relegated to the backseat. The book will certainly awaken our compassion and respect for these heroes, who should be considered national treasures.
This is definitely a timely book and should. inspire current and future generations. Grab a copy of the book now!
