Thrasher writes book
Robert Thrasher, frequent contributor to the Checkerboard, has written a collection of World War II memories, "Popcorn Road to Paris
Thrasher was a scout during the war, serving in the 3rd Platoon, L/395. For the past 20 years he has been writing his "memories" of his war experiences, many of which have appeared in the Checkerboard.

His style of writing is almost that of a comic entertainer. He pokes fun at Uncle Sam in "My First Job," saying he never got paid for any of the jobs he did until he became a soldier and received a dollar a day and room and board.
