Just to lighten things up once again I chose to play "Running Bear" this time.


This page contains information about people I'm trying to locate. Some of them were mentioned in my books while others are people my correspondents are trying to find.

My first two books have already reunited several Veterans. I hope this page will help do the same for more people.

In addition--if you can not help any of these folks looking for their buddies or if you are searching for someone you want to find--you can also try USA People Search HOWEVER they charge for their services!
