Michael, my spouse of 53 years was in reality a U.S. Marine with a one-way like mission. In 2012 shortly after his military history was declassified, he revealed his orders, records, and documents to me. For the love of God, country, and family he was trained and prepared to give his all with a backpack nuclear weapon. You will understand he had no awareness of white supremacy or white privilege. He was ready to sacrifice everything in defense of all races.

When you read the book, “America’s Backpack Nuke” you will experience suspense and mystery intertwined with a great love story that tears at your heart. Michael was not in search of glory, medals, tattoos, or dress blues. He was a Marine of Honor, no more, no less.
