Welcome! American Hero is a an immigrant’s tale starting in an idyllic farm village in Europe, crossing the Atlantic at sixteen to Pre-WWll New York City, surviving the horrors of Omaha Beach and the DDay invasion of Europe. A decorated combat infantryman and wartime spy; a farmer, diamond courier, and Space Program technician. He is comfortable with generals, presidents, and men who walked on the Moon; but counts as one of life’s great treats, every good meal he has eaten from Cody, Wyoming to Paris, France. He is Walter Mitty meets Tom Sawyer meets Forrest Gump; humorous, poignant, and inspiring; distinctly unique, lucky as the day is long, but never for a moment boring.
