Centerline Dave McIntyre 2013-05-30 WINNER -- Best Military Book -- 2013 Next Generation Indie Book Awards WINNER -- Gold Medal for Historical Fiction / War -- 2013 Stars & Flags Book Awards Finalist -- First Novel -- 2013 Next Generation Indie Book Awards "Centerline is a thrilling, high-action page-turner that captures a story many Americans fail to appreciate-the sacrifices of our armed forces, their families, and the medical teams who support them. The tactical flight operations, ground combat scenes, and medical emergencies are real-not Hollywood-and the stories of wounded warriors and those waiting at home are unforgettable." - General Bill Begert, USAF (Ret), Former Commander, Pacific Air Forces Centerline tells the arresting story of the last leg of an emotional journey through the eyes of wounded warriors, crew, and medical caregivers making the trip home from military hospitals just before Christmas at the height of the surge in Iraq. Air Evac 1492 is the collective Air Force call sign for the flight. But each person on board has an individual story of hopes, dreams, fears, and regrets as the aircraft wings its human cargo through bad weather, flashbacks, and in flight emergencies. "Everybody who goes to war gets shot," one soldier says. "Some in the body. Some in the head. Some in the heart." This inspiring debut novel by Dave McIntyre (Ret COL USA) combines compelling technical descriptions of flying, combat, and medical care in-flight to drive the story through a rollercoaster ride of emotions as thirty-one "souls on board" travel through pain, loss, a killer storm, and the demons of the past to make it home for Christmas. Some travelers will fall short of the runway. And some will find the beacon that leads them home-back to the centerline.
East Bay Grease Eric Miles Williamson 2018-06-18 East Bay Grease, Eric Miles Williamson’s now classic first novel, has received worldwide acclaim as one of the great depictions of working-class America in the latter half of the 20th century. The story of T-Bird Murphy, born in the tumultuous 1960s and raised in the ghettoes of Oakland by his mother, who rides with the Hell’s Angels, his father, who is an ex-convict, and the father figures who range from musicians to construction workers, East Bay Grease is a novel of dignity, honor, and courage that has been compared to the works of John Steinbeck, Jack London, and Upton Sinclair. Praise for EAST BAY GREASE: “Williamson’s writing becomes transcendent. His prose cuts loose in torrid rhythms that evoke the peril and exuberance of jazz.” —The New York Times Book Review “A confident debut, an arresting, often harrowing read.” —The London Times

How to Write an Obituary Christina Newberry 2008
Echoes in the Storm Max Henry 2017-09-12 One week is all we were supposed to share. One week as strangers. All the things you did differently irked me. I thought it meant we couldn't get along, that there was no chance we'd work out. But when it came time for me to leave, you know what I figured out? You were my echo. My call back. And damn it if I didn't find home in the end.
Board Member Orientation Michael E. Batts 2011-02-01 Finally! Board member orientation truly simplified. Serving on a nonprofit board can be an incredibly rewarding experience for the properly prepared board member. This book is for the generous and busy people who agree to give of their time and talents by serving on nonprofit boards. Nonprofit boards often fail to do a good job of board member orientation for a variety of reasons. It takes a significant amount of time and effort to plan and conduct quality board member orientation programs, and every time a new board member arrives, it's time to do it again! Because of the challenges associated with providing quality board member orientation, many nonprofit organizations do not do it at all, leaving their board members to wing it. This book provides help and support to the truly great men and women serving on nonprofit boards whose service makes a positive difference in the lives of countless people every day. This book is a concise and appropriately comprehensive guide to nonprofit board service designed especially for new board members. It is a quick read, (about one hour), yet it addresses with accuracy the most significant elements of board service, such as mission, responsibility, duty, risk, liability, and board meeting dynamics. Hooey Alerts! Watch for Hooey Alerts! where the author identifies and dispels common myths and legends about nonprofit board service. There are many sources of false or misleading information about the nonprofit board service environment. A perfect example is the often vaguely-worded and intimidating assertion or implication that the Sarbanes-Oxley Act passed by Congress in 2002 applies to nonprofit organizations in a manner similar to how it applies to publicly-traded companies. (It does not.) Reviews "This book is the perfect guide for every nonprofit board member! Concise, highly informative, and loaded with nuggets of wisdom, it's a must read that will take board members to the next level of successful board governance." -- J. Todd Chasteen, General Counsel, Samaritan's Purse "Mike Batts has put his quarter century of advising and serving on nonprofit boards to good use in this accurate and easy-to-read book. In addition to describing major principles of nonprofit law and governance, the book provides helpful questions to guide board members in understanding the practical applications of the concepts discussed. While geared primarily toward helping new board members get up to speed quickly, it should also help veteran board members discharge their stewardship roles wisely and efficiently." -- Chuck Hartman, Associate Professor of Business Law and Accounting, Cedarville University "This book, Board Member Orientation, is exactly what a busy volunteer board member needs. The board member's duties are presented in a clear and concise manner from the perspective of someone who has been around many boards. With a focus on those issues that are most common and/or most important, it is perfect for board member orientation and for quick reference reminders for the experienced board member." -- Doug Starcher, Partner, Broad & Cassel "This book provides clear, no-nonsense guidance on the basic issues for new nonprofit board members. Using this book for board member orientation will ensure your organization has communicated fundamental governance issues and will assist the board in determining risk management strategies." -- Dan Busby, President, ECFA *********************************** The Simple Board Member Orientation Process Using This Book: 1.Your board members read Chapters 1-9 of the book, which will provide them with insights regarding the key elements of nonprofit board service. 2.You provide the board members with copies of the documents described in Chapter 10 related to your organization. 3.You meet with your board members to discuss the unique attributes of your organization following the discussion questions provided in Chapter 10. Done!

Inexperienced and out of his depth, he turns to a former detective and veteran of the western front for assistance.Involving Marshall Geary might be his biggest mistake.Marshall wears a copper mask, as much to hide behind as to conceal his disfigurements. He struggles against howling flashbacks and the lingering stench of his own concealed crimes.In a town meant for sanctuary, repressed horrors awaken like worms in a collapsing coffin. The closer they get to the truth, the nearer everyone is dragged to their limits, their failings and their buried pasts.

New York Magazine 1992-09-14 New York magazine was born in 1968 after a run as an insert of the New York Herald Tribune and quickly made a place for itself as the trusted resource for readers across the country.

#Houston69: Apollo 11 - When Men Walked on the Moon Philip Gibson 2014-09-22 What if there had been social media during the first mission to land a man on the Moon mission in 1969? If you were not fortunate enough to be able to witness the entire historic mission as it unfolded, this account will put you believably back inside those 8 dramatic and historic days. The unique social media format of the book allows us to experience all the drama and achievements as if we were following them live, and as if the participants were speaking to us directly in real time. The narrative is based on actual astronaut accounts, NASA transcripts of the fascinating continual communications with the astronauts, broadcasts of the all main TV networks covering the mission and the thoughts of many laypeople observers. The account also includes details that were not publicly available at the time, such as the secret speech to be delivered by President Nixon should the astronauts fail to return from the Moon. There is an extensive list of major sources at the end of the book. It is not a book, therefore, written in the usual book format. It is the story of man's first exploration of Earth's nearest neighbor, the Moon, told as if in real time in the form of imaginary social media posts by the main participants and observers. Although using the fictional (at the time) vehicle of social media, the book gives an accurate account of the historic mission, revealing what the people involved in, and those witnessing, the momentous events were thinking, doing and saying at each stage of the mission. The account covers the entire mission, from the tense build up and countdown to the launch to the heart-stopping descent to the lunar surface, the first moonwalk, the experiments on the surface, the journey back to Earth, re-entry, recovery and the triumphal reception back in New York.

Leaves from Fire Simcha Guterman 2015-01-14 Simcha Guterman's, Leaves from Fire, is a firsthand account written with the deep sense of comprehension he was documenting the fate of his people. Knowing full well that his life was in danger, Simcha chronicled the occurrences of the Holocaust on long scraps of paper, as they happened right before his eyes. The events described take place in Poland, during the first years of World War II. The author stuffed long paper scraps, written in Yiddish, into bottles and hid in them in different places. One of these bottles was discovered after the war. Simcha Guterman's work has been published and translated into eight different languages, receiving high praise from critics. The book's evocative illustrations were drawn by Yaakov Guterman, the author's son.
