    How We Define Heroes in Present Day with Allan K Patch, Retired Captain, USN,

    in Lifestyle

    The Heroes and Heroines in the media today take all shapes and forms. Aside from Police, Firemen and Military who sign up to be in harm’s way, some are ordinary people who rise to meet extraordinary situations.


    Always more visible are the fictional characters portrayed by Hollywood celebrities; from The Incredibles to James Bond, from comic book superheroes to cinematic heroics, we are awed and entertained.  But what of celebrity mis-named heroes such as athletes – are their efforts heroic- or just inspiring…as well as entertaining?


    Ancient Greek and Roman History was so inspired by heroics that gods were created who not only had great power but were also greatly flawed.   In today’s world we bandy about the term hero without seemingly understanding the meaning of the word.  Football players, basketball stars, actors, musicians…all are referred to and refer to each other as heroes.  


    Retired USN Captain Allan Patch grew up in Plymouth, Mass where he developed a fascination with the heritage of our nation.  Adding sciences to his interest in history, Allan earned a BS in biology from Boston College and a DMD from Tufts University. He then spent over two decades in the Navy, deployed in both Navy hospitals and in active duty with the Marine Corps; and entered private dental practice while serving in the Naval Reserve.  


    Passage At Delphi is the first novel in a series exploring the confluence of the past, present, and future.  He invites readers along for the thrilling ride and explores the difference between heroism and celebrity in the context of past and present culture. 


    Author Alan Patch is here to talk about PASSAGE AT DELPHI, Apollo Series Book 1 the beginning of Lauren and Zack’s epic adventure.

    Neil Haley Interviews Award-Winning Journalist Eric Poole

    in Education

    Eric Poole felt strongly about writing his book, Company of Heroes.  Here is a synopsis:On May 10, 1970, during the Cambodian Incursion, Army Specialist Leslie Sabo Jr., 22-years old, married only 30 days before shipping out and on active duty for just 6 months, died as his patrol was ambushed near a remote border area of Cambodia. When an enemy grenade landed near a wounded comrade, Sabo used his body to shield the soldier from the blast. Despite being mortally injured, he crawled towards the enemy emplacement and threw a grenade into the bunker. The explosion silenced the enemy fire, but also ended Sabo's life. This attack by North Vietnamese troops killed eight of Sabo's fellow soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division and would come to be known as the "Mother's Day Ambush." Sabo's commanders nominated him for the Medal of Honor, but the request was somehow lost. A campaign to correct the oversight began in 1999, ultimately leading to legislation that eliminated the three-year time limit on awarding this medal.
     
    Forty-two years after his selfless acts of heroism during the Vietnam War saved the lives of his fellow soldiers; Leslie H. Sabo Jr. posthumously received the Medal of Honor on May 16, 2012.
     
    Using military records and interviews with surviving soldiers, journalist Eric Poole recreates the terror of combat amidst the jungles and rice paddies as Bravo Company 3rd Battalion, 506th Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne forged bonds of brotherhood in their battle for survival. Company of Heroes offers an insight into the incredible and harrowing experiences of just a small number of men from a single unit, deep in the jungles of Vietnam and Cambodia.
