Please note: the weatherman, in his infinite wisdom, is
predicting snow for
Sunday. Should travel be too
hazardous, we will reschedule this show for a later date and a
previous show will be aired in its place.
Our scheduled guests on POW/MIA Radio for
Sunday, April 13, 2014 are:
2:00pm Mtn – News and Views:
An hour of the latest POW/MIA and veterans issues.
3:00pm Mtn – Mr. Frank Maresca:
Frank is an author and World War II veteran. He served three
years before being discharged following a life threatening war
related injury. He was awarded a Purple Heart by the US
Government and the Legion of Honor by the French. His recent book, A
Soldier’s Odyssey, is a historical memoir of Mr. Maresca’s
experiences as a rifleman in the 75th Infantry, including details of
the Battle of the Bulge. His story also tells of the
friendships that were forged under extreme conditions that last for
a lifetime and his survival made possible by the outstanding moral
character of men around him. Frank is very active in his local
Allentown, PA veterans group and often speaks to high school
students about the war.
4:00pm Mtn – Ms. Linda Goetz Holmes:
Historian and author, Linda Goetz Holmes has written several books
on the POW experience in the Pacific and was the first Pacific War
Historian appointed to advise the government’s Interagency Working
Group to declassify documents on World War II crimes established by
President Clinton. She is the principle editor of a book
entitled, CAPTURED, The Forgotten men of Guam, by Mr. Roger Mansell.
Unfortunately, Mr. Mansell died before completing his work and Ms.
Goetz Holmes finished his manuscript. Their book is not only
the story of the capture of Guam in the earliest days of World War
II but also the survival of the men and women that were taken as
Prisoners of War to Japan from the Philippines and other allied
losses. The men endured the horrific hardships delivered by
Japanese military and civilian workers. Mr. Mansell
interviewed POWs and meticulously uncovered records to compile a
database helping families find answers to the fate of their loved
ones. Linda will discuss the book and her work as editor.
Among her other books is, Guests of the Emperor, The Secret History
of Japan’s Mukden POW Camp.
