Inhaltsangabe: At the age of eighteen, armed with a dream of flying and the desire to serve his country, Norman Gaddis enlists in the Army Air Corps in the months following the bombing of Pearl Harbor. After twenty-four years of service and seventy-two combat missions, he is shot down while in flight in an F-4 Phantom over Hanoi. He spends the next 2,124 days as a prisoner of war in the infamous Hoa Lo Prison, better known as the Hanoi Hilton. This true story follows Retired Brigadier General Norman C. Gaddis through his journey as he endures a thousand days of solitary confinement, physical and mental torture and nearly six years held captive as a POW. Relying on skills gained through his years of training and his love of and faith in both family and country he not only survives, but maintains his sanity and his honor. This is a story of strength, integrity and patriotism; a tale of a truly great American.
Über den Autor: Bill Norris lives in Florida with his wife, Sheila, and four cats. He is an entrepreneur who has created businesses with operations in most states in the U.S., across Canada, and in Mexico. Bill is a veteran of the Vietnam War. Dagger Four Is OK, The Brig. Gen. Norman Gaddis POW Memoir, is Bill?s recently completed second book. His first book, Flying Into The Storm, released in 2014, tells the true story of his experiences as an air mobile infantry soldier in 1968 flying numerous helicopter combat assault missions and living the life of a grunt soldier, boots on the ground. It has been called Stephen Crane?s Red Badge of Courage for Vietnam. Bill holds a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration from Lenoir Rhyne College (now University) in his hometown of Hickory, North Carolina. In 1978, he used his experience from his Postal management fast track position he earned after college and left the Postal Service to create the first Mail Presorting Service Bureau as a service company he expanded into seventeen cities coast to coast. He sold that business to Daimler Benz in 1996. In 2002, Bill and Sheila created Go Mini?s (gominis.com) and, through a system of dealerships, expanded that portable storage business into 160 cities. The business converted to a franchise by majority sale to its dealers in 2012. Although not a pilot in the war, he developed a love for flight from dozens of helicopter combat assault missions. He later earned his wings as a private pilot owning airplanes he flew primarily to expand his business interests. Bill is a member of the Student Affairs Community Council at the University of North Florida and is a member of the World Affairs Council in Jacksonville, Florida.
