    Military Author Radio, with co-hosts Dr. Tom Gauthier, and Dari Bradley welcome our guest, Tim Deal.  He and his brother Mike spent two years bringing a 70-year-old incredible World War II escape story back from obscurity.  South From Corregidor describes the daring escape to freedom of 18 US Navy sailors from the minesweeper USS Quail. Using a 36-foot Navy motor launch, the 18 sailors, led by Lieutenant Commander John H. slipped out of the mouth of the bay on a month-long, 2000-mile odyssey to Darwin, Australia.

    This republished version of South From Corregidor is as Lieutenant Commander Morrill wrote it. The Deal brothers added 39 maps to show the escapees' journey and included six illustrations that were part of a 1942 Saturday Evening Post article.

    LIVE PROGRAM: TUESDAY, April 1, 2014 7:00 PM CST


    The Donkey

    Paul Stuligross, a former detective, currently a High School Teacher at an all-girls Catholic High School in Michigan, is a downright interesting person!  It’s always a treat to have a conversation with Paul. The Donkey, is an uplifting, faith-based family novel by author Paul Stuligross about a 48-year-old newspaper reporter, Dan Mertze, who vainly tries to overcome a despairing world view that has gradually permeated his writing.   He reluctantly accepts an assignment to interview 99-year-old Claire Henning, relating her childhood religious experiences involving a donkey.  After several interviews with Claire, subtle changes occur in Dan’s life as he learns not all troubles are bad and some are blessings. John Sloan, Claire’s father in the story, was inspired by the author’s grandfather, John Stuligross, who served in the United States Army’s 85th Division, 339th Infantry Regiment, an expeditionary force officially known as Polar Bears. In 1918 he was sent to Russia during World War I to fight the Bolsheviks.

    USS Frank E. Evans DD754 Memorial Program


    Unsinkable Sailors:  The fall and rise of the last crew of  USS Frank E. Evans

    Paul Sherbo will be joining us as our Guest Host to commemorate the forty-fifth anniversary of the June 3, 1969 sinking of the USS Frank E. Evans a United States Navy destroyer, struck by the Australian aircraft carrier HMAS Melbourne. 

    Operating as part of a combined force with the Royal Australian Navy and other allied naval ships, the Evans executed a starboard turn into the path of Melbourne at 0315 a.m. on June 3, 1969 and was cut in half by the heavier and larger war ship.  Evans’ broken off bow section sank almost immediately taking 73 unfortunate crewmembers with it.  Only one body was recovered in the aftermath of the collision, bringing the total lost to 74.  Out of the 273 crewmembers on board, 199 survived.

    The stern section, although severely damaged, remained afloat. The courage and heroic spirit of both ships' crews add a genuine admiration for their bravery despite their confusion in the sudden turn of events.

    We’ll be talking with former crew members who will provide updates on the groups activities and the drive by the USS Frank E. Evans DD754 Association members to have the ‘Lost 74” names added to the Vietnam Memorial Wall.

    Military Author Radio is proud to feature the author of the acclaimed history The Nisei Soldier, Edwin “Bud” Nakasone who brings special credentials to his task of writing this book.

    Born in Hawaii, Nakasone witnessed the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. After graduating high school he served in the United States Army as an interpreter during the Occupation of Japan in 1947-48. Now a retired colonel, US Army, Nakasone taught aboard US Navy vessels at sea as an adjunct professor for NCPACE—the Navy’s college afloat.

    He has travelled widely, authored many papers, several books and produced videos on WWII. He is the recipient of two Fulbright Grants, one to Japan in 1965, the second to India in 1981.

    In his acclaimed book, The Nisei Soldier, Professor Nakasone brings to life a part of history that has been neglected—the account of Japanese-American soldiers, the Nisei, as they fought bravely for their country despite the discrimination accorded them by the people and government of the U.S.A. Nakasone’s narrative is rich in descriptive detail, based not only upon his own experiences but extensive interviews he had with the soldiers of whom he writes as well.

    Historian Edwin M. Nakasone is a University of Minnesota graduate and a professor emeritus of Century College, White Bear Lake, MN, teaching World War II history, Asian history and Asian Pacific American History.

    APRIL 23, 2013 GUEST:
    Military Author Radio, www.militaryauthorradio.com with Director Dr. Tom Gauthier and Dari Bradley CEO of Patriot Media, Incorporated, is proud to continue to promote Military Authors in support of the Military Author Industrial Complex.
    The granddaughter of General  James H. Doolittle, Jonna Doolittle Hoppes, has written two books: Calculated Risk, a biography/memoir about her grandparents, and Just Doing My Job, a collection of 19 stories from WWII. Her articles have appeared in Smithsonian's Air and Space magazine, as well as other publications.
    Jonna has toured the United States and Europe delivering the same message. "If we don't record our stories, they will be lost." Central to that message is the theme that ‘there are heroes among us: People who will tell you that they were just doing their job, but, in reality, through their service, they gave us the freedom we enjoy today.  The heroes among us fought in WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and Desert Storm.  They are fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq today.  There are also heroes among us who kept the home fires burning and America functioning as they waited for our soldiers to come home from harm's way.’
