"An estimated 19,000 rapes and sexual assaults took place in the military last year. Every one of them represents a monstrous crime made much worse by the sense of betrayal that accompanied it. That so few victims--just one in seven--report these crimes underscores the utter lack of trust that pervades military culture." -- Retired Gen. Loree Sutton and Garry Trudeau, in a Washington Post OpEd, June 29, 2013 The first time B.D. encounters command-rape survivor Melissa Wheeler in the waiting room at the VA Center, he has no idea what to make of the scowling former chopper mechanic. But in the months that follow, witnessing Mel's pain and her healing process help him with his own, and B.D. ends up a staunch and encouraging ally. With the help of VA counselors Cora and Elias, Wheeler is able to reframe her experience and move forward to the point where she re-ups and re-deploys, though the trauma and betrayal continue to haunt her. She and battlebud Roz masterfully manage a perilous rescue op of a downed USO chopper, and in the new post-DADT world the now-out Roz and her now-superior ("That's SERGEANT bitch to you!") help wind down US ops in Afghanistan. Returning stateside, Mel's final obstacle is her father's cluelessness--and a widespread reluctance to hear the truth of her story. As always, Trudeau manages to find humor and humanity in even a tale of suffering, and sheds serious light on one of the most pressing and undermining problems in our military today.

Verses from scripture and moral lessons come alive through the inspiration of well known authors such as C.S. Lewis and John Donne.

I pray that as you work through these devotions they transform from mere words on a page into inspirations for your life.

One Yoopers Journey: An Unauthorized Autobiography is a fictionalized autobiography. It needs to be fictionalized just as a resume needs to be embellished. It may not be as believable, but the fictionalized parts are intended to be much more entertaining. The events described in the book really happened. The specifics, such as the minute details and the dialogue, may not be historically accurate. The term unauthorized autobiography, though somewhat oxymoronic, has a purpose. Real Yoopers may take exception to the use of this word in the title, since the author has lived most of his life outside of the Upper Peninsula. His journey parallels at times and intersects at other times with the journey of his favorite relativehis Uncle Hal Nowell. Uncle Hal teams up with him from time to time with a mix of shared adventures and misadventures. The author was positively influenced by the town and the many good people of Escanaba.

Wise men throughout the generations understood that the history of mankind was narrow in its presentation. It is not accurately reflected by a spotlight that briefly rests upon the accomplishments or disasters brought about by a few people of notoriety. The history of man is about the myriad of human beings who give birth to each generation. Because Life Is for Living is author Mel Oderberg s personal story of survival, an arduous journey through World War II. It is also a reflection of the story of many of his compatriots. His memoir begins with an unusual description of the betrayal of his beloved Polish homeland and follows his trek in the shadow of his own generation of refugees where so many perished and only a lucky few survived. He considers both the enmity and goodness of his countrymen, Russian hosts, and sometimes even German foes that made survival possible, offering his testimony to the triumph of good over evil. This life story provides a glimpse into the lives of one generation, many of whom will never be able to tell their tale. It is a tribute to the dedication of the many who have fallen. It is also a reminder that many in subsequent generations may continue to fall because of mankind s inability to reconcile its soul with its past through the recognition that history is the story of common men.

While preparing this book for publication, I really began to think of just how much The Journey became my purpose. When I first started writing poetry around 15 years ago, I was simply trying to find a way to describe the emotions that were consuming me within at the time. My friend of 22 years committed suicide on Nov 18, 1993. After writing poems afterwards for a couple years, I had decided to create a 100-page book in order to keep a promise IId made to Bill that his name would live on far past his death. Today this book marks the 10th edition since that first book. Follow Your Dreams, Someday They May Just Come True

So many labels, so little time—just tell me what to buy! If you—like millions of other Americans—still don't know how to read food labels and are frustrated by the hundreds of nutrition and health claims as well as statements like free-range and grassfed, it's time to learn what you're really putting into your body...find out how to select the most healthy foods at the supermarket and still get dinner on the table by 6:00 pm with EATING BETWEEN THE LINES Shopping is no longer as simple as deciding what's for dinner. Food labels like "organic," "natural," "low carb," and "fat free!" scream out at you from every aisle at the supermarket. Some claims are certified by authoritative groups such as the FDA and USDA, but much of our country's nutrition information is simply a marketing ploy. If you want to know what food labels really mean—and what they could mean to your health—EATING BETWEEN THE LINES will explain why: --Chickens labeled "free range" may never actually see daylight --Organic seafood may be a misnomer. --The words "hormone-free" on pork, eggs and poultry is meaningless --"Low fat" cookies and "heart-healthy" cereals may contain heart damaging trans-fatty acids ...and more. Organized by supermarket section, from the vegetable aisle to the dairy case, EATING BETWEEN THE LINES also features more than seventy actual food labels and detachable shopping lists for your convenience—and to help bring the best food to the table for you and your family.

Mel Lewis (1929-1990) was born Melvin Sokoloff to Jewish Russian immigrants in Buffalo, New York. He first picked up his father's drumsticks at the age of two and at 17 he was a full-time professional musician. The View from the Back of the Band is the first biography of this legendary jazz drummer. For over fifty years, Lewis provided the blueprint for how a drummer could subtly support any musical situation. While he made his name with Stan Kenton and Thad Jones, and with his band at the Village Vanguard, it was the hundreds of recordings that he made as a sideman and his ability to mentor young musicians that truly defined his career. Away from the drums, Lewis's passionate and outspoken personality made him one of jazz music's greatest characters. It is often through Lewis's own anecdotes, as well as many from the musicians who knew him best, that this book traces the career of one of the world's greatest drummers. Previously unpublished interviews, personal memoirs, photos, musical transcriptions, and a selected discography add to this comprehensive biography.
