"I'll tell you someday..." Those were the words spoken from a Navy shipman to his younger brother after returning home from 28 months of war. That day finally came just a little over a year ago. Carl Young began to write his younger brother daily emails about his adventures aboard the DE-416 USS Melvin R.Nawman.
Carl's younger brother began to put this treasured diary together and write a fictionalized version that will make you cheer, laugh, cry, and maybe even grip your chair anxiously. Through the eyes of these two young men, you will relive their lives during the war. What it was like to enlist and leave behind a sweetheart and family for the young seaman. To live through a typhoon, enemy attacks, and shore leave shenanigans. What it was like to be the kid left behind during one of the most iconic wars in history. A family holding on to hope that it will end soon and their son and brother will be home again.
28 Months of Heaven and Hell by JD Karns available at most retailers or get your copy at the links below.
