McMurdies are authors of books

McMurdies are authors of books

     Bill and Jean McMurdie were at the 99th convention held in Northern Kentucky this past summer. Both were authors of recently published books.

     On Oct. 3, this fall, Bill died from sudden cardiac arrest, which seldom leaves survivors.

     They had been scheduled to go on the Battlefield Tour (postponed until May due to the terrorist attacks).

     Jean may be reached by writing 2311 Via Puerta Unit B, Laguna Woods, CA 92653.

     Her book, "Land of the Morning," is about her experience of being captured by the Japanese, in the Philippines, during World War II.

     Bill's book, "Hey Mac," previously reviewed in the Checkerboard, is about his experiences in A/394.

     Both books are available at $12 each (includes postage) by sending a check to the above address, or order at your favorite bookstore.
