    Mr. Mace,
    Some may do things that amaze or intrique us out here, but your book is a rare look into the past that only a handful of men could write.
    Can't wait to get my copy...... Above All, Good for you !!!

    You, too, Mr. Mace! We've missed you. I had hoped it was because you were busy with the final touches on the book....

    Nah, my computer was on the fritz for a while, so I just sat around drinking martinis. I have other people to do all the hard work for me. Haha.

    Do Marines pass on Sir? Or do they scream their way into the next world?

    I've got my order in! I'm looking forward to reading your book. Martinis, eh? I make mine by waving a picture of a vermouth bottle over a glass of vodka while I'm opening up a jar of olives. Cheers! :cheers:

    Thank you all for your interest in my book. It really means a lot to me.

    The review Mr. Russo refers to is found here: BATTLEGROUND PACIFIC by Sterling Mace, Nick Allen | Kirkus Book Reviews

    I thought it was humorous when they claim I am politically incorrect, but when we started the book my co-author wanted to make sure we didn't write it from the perspective of an old man looking back 60 years ago. He wanted to capture how we felt and spoke back then, which was a lot of hard work, because it was so long ago. I know we don't use some of those words today, but I can promise you there's not an old marine vet who doesn't think to himself those politically incorrect words. They come off natural.

    I'm sure that it really upset you that you are politically incorrect.

    You book is on order.
