By Lloyd R. Spanberger
It was the early 1960s and our country was in the midst of the cold war with the Soviet Union. President Eisenhower had, earlier, decided to initiate development of a spy satellite system to obtain strategic intelligence data on the Soviets. A massive program was instituted to accomplish this goal and, as part of the overall program, the concept of an all-military facility to provide R&D support and duplicate imagery processing from these satellites, was ordered. This began the establishment of the AFSPPF, which operated for 15 years in that capacity. This story describes the mission of the AFSPPF and what it was like to work in an Ultra Top Secret operation, whose mission was not disclosed until now. No-one involved with our operation could talk about it to anyone, including family, friends or anyone else in the military, unless they were properly cleared and were amongst those who needed to know. All content herein was derived from the personal recollections of our remaining members and from what little official declassified documentation we could find. It is hoped the reader will enjoy learning what it was like to work in such a unique Top Secret unit of the U.S. Air Force.

By Nadine T. Preston / Michael R. Preston
The Land of Nod is based on a true store of the life and times of Jerrell Dean Thomas. Born after the Civil War in north east Texas, Jerrell Dean Porter was the only daughter of Robert Terrell Porter a wealthy liberal Christian Plantation owner who was also a former slave owner, and Louisa Love (Lou) a 15 year old former slave girl from the Porter Plantation. Because of her appearance, and an elaborate deception, Jerrell Dean Porter passed for white while being raised by her aunt Pearlee. She would eventually choose love over privilege and fully embrace the ramifications of her choice. It’s a story about love and lust, of loyalty and betrayal, of evil and kindness, tolerance, compassion, respect and hope. It’s a story about the slow progress of fairness and personal freedom against tremendous and formidable obstacles like constant threats of violence, racism, sexism and homophobia. This entertaining story is full of colorful characters with a wide variety of twists and unexpected turns.

The book is a study of those who controlled war and thought about war, such as Frederick the Great with his observation, "What is the good of experience if you do not reflect". The analysis continues with a study of Napoleon, the Great War and World War II with the unexpected cessation with the dropping of two atomic bombs.

Why did Concord, Massachusetts, the small inland farming village, twenty miles northwest of Boston, become the center of America’s intellectual life in the mid 1800’s? And why did celebrated authors Henry D. Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Louisa May Alcott, Nathaniel Hawthorne and Margaret Fuller all live and write at that same time in Concord? Literary Concord Uncovered provides a wonderful introductory overview of Concord’s classic authors and their creations. It reveals some of the secrets that enabled these brilliant American authors to write their pioneering works, which include Thoreau’s Walden, Emerson’s “Self Reliance,” Alcott’s Little Women and Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter. This book will help readers gain a deeper understanding and experience greater enjoyment from reading extraordinary and exciting books by many of Concord’s—and America’s--greatest authors.

African American Sons and Daughters of Bethania, North Carolina, traces the history of the original freedmen and their descendants in this small North Carolina community.

Using interviews, letters, photographs and historical documents, it tells the story of how a newly freed people built their community following the Civil War. Their place of worship, originally established as a Black Moravian Church, joined the African Methodist Episcopal Zion denomination. Community members with meager resources went about the business of educating their children, creating self-help societies, building their own homes and developing and displaying their agricultural and homemaking skills.

From its humble origins an economically self-sufficient community developed that would send forth many of its descendants to higher education and successful careers.

Political and Military Statements in Support of the Thousands of Merchant Mariners Including Those We Honor in This Book Braving the Wartime Seas “The Academy serves the Merchant Marine as West Point serves the Army and Annapolis serves the Navy . . .” (September 30, 1943, dedication of USMMA campus) President Franklin D. Roosevelt “The only thing that ever really frightened me during the war was the U-boat peril.” Prime Minister Winston S. Churchill “This is a hundredth gone. Too damned many of these fine lads gone. Wish there was more we could do to minimize losses.” Captain Richard R. McNulty, June 16, 1943 Note on report of death of a Cadet-Midshipman “They have brought us our lifeblood and they had paid for it with some of their own . . . they have delivered their cargoes to us who needed them so badly. In war it is performance that counts.” Quotes from Douglas MacArthur, General of the U.S. Army “Yours was the first front on every ocean, and without you, no Army and Navy can survive . . . one of the vital teams participating will be recognized as the merchant seamen in dungarees . . . we of the Navy will salute you with a final ‘Well done’.” Admiral Harold R. Stark, Commander of U.S. Naval Forces in Europe “Our operations would not have been possible without the strong support of our Merchant Marine. These gallant officers and men maintained a bridge of ships across the Pacific, and bore their share of the Japanese attacks while unloading on distant islands where the struggle was still intense and the issue not yet decided.” Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, U.S. Navy, Chief of Naval Operations Braving the Wartime Seas is the final book of the American Maritime History Project, a private nonprofit foundation. The quotations were drawn from www.usmm.org. Front cover was designed by Marek Mutch, Bay Village, OH.
