We like this book

The book is - PT 109: An American Epic of War, Survival, and the Destiny of John F. Kennedy – June 7, 2016 by William Doyle  

Here are the reasons we like it:

·         We read it fast – about one day – why?  We didn’t want to put it down

·         We have often thought about the decline and fall of our politicians and our many nonmilitary government people and have for some time darn near concluded that our (America’s) last two top good guys were – General Eisenhower and Lieutenant John F. Kennedy

·         This book tells us about Lt. Kennedy and just a few years of his life and we don’t know if the author got it 100% right – we know this – even at a fraction of that measurement – well read it and you see what you think

·         We want to close with this simple yet obvious connection – it’s a fundamental – we are blessed – fortunate – we are not alone with this fortunate blessing – we know that the country to the north of us as well as the place that we had to remove a couple of century’s ago and a few of their other settlements around the globe – we know how blessed we Americans are to have these as our allies – so revisit what General Eisenhower and Lieutenant Kennedy did working with those others so that today we get to deal with 435/100/9 of the greatest nincompoops ever to run our spectacular country and…

·         …pray (also fight for it – vote for it – read/learn about it) that someday we will again be guided by the good women and men who not only saved us in the 1940’s they raised us – they taught us – they left it up to us to continue – and so far we are failing…so far.
