ND DEPARTMENT NEWS THE PUBLIC AFFAIRS DEPARTMENT IS PRESENTING THE NOVEMBER PROGRAM
VETERAN’S DAY IS NOVEMBER 11th and
AUTHOR’S DAY IS NOVEMBER 1st


We will honor Veteran’s Day with a focus on
Prisoners of War / Missing in Action (POW/MIA)





Our speaker will be Carol Jose. Carol will tell us about her most recent book, “You Are Not Forgotten: A Family’s Quest for Truth and the Founding of the National League of Families”.

This is a non-fiction, well-docum
ented Vietnam War history that she co-authored with the late Evelyn Grubb of Melbourne. Former Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger, wrote the Foreword.

Evelyn Grubb’s husband was shot down over North Vietnam in 1966. The book won first prize for history /non-fiction from the Indie Book Awards. This is a powerful, personal, and emotional journey of a group of strong and capable women and men who came together, grew in stature and effectiveness, and ensured that their husbands and loved ones would not be forgotten. Carol was recently invited to the Pentagon by the Secretary of Defense for the ceremonies held on National POW/MIA Recognition Day, where Secretary Gates and former POW Admiral Jeremiah Denton were the featured speakers.

If possible, Carol’s friend Evelyn Guarino will come to answer questions. Her husband was a prisoner of war in North Vietnam for nearly 8 years. She has written a book “Saved By Love”.

This will be a Bo
ok-signing Event. Books make great gifts.
