Inhaltsangabe: This 279 page book tells the "story of Robert Leon Singleton - a child of the Great Depression, Army Air Force Veteran of World War II, partner in a successful family business, and a man of faith known for selfless devotion to his family, friends, and community. It chronicles the evolution of his character from Scotch-Irish roots in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and great grandparents he never knew. It provides insight to the formation of strong values and beliefs, influenced by his father's quest to improve their lot through commitment to hard work, family, and church. It also speaks to his appreciation for robust living, heightened by the heartbreaking, premature deaths of loved ones. As a young man, his future plans with high school sweetheart Norma were interrupted by the war, taking him to an air base in England near a tiny village called Great Yeldham. He was sent as a gunnery instructor but volunteered as a 'toggalier' on B-17s to accumulate combat credits and earn an early release from the Army. Half of this book is devoted to his wartime experience, which is brought to life through excerpts from his mission log and intimate letters to Norma. His life story after the war reads like the dreams described in his daily letters from England. Like others of his generation, he asserts that he simply did his duty, came home, and picked up where he had left off. But in witnessing how fully he lives his life, it is apparent that his dark days in 'Great Yoho' had a lasting impact." Contains 8 pages of black and white photos.
