Why am I in Hawaii?


Why in the world would I take off from Christmas tree trimming and holiday baking to go to Hawaii? The reason I’m here is to honor the veterans of Pearl Harbor, those that lost their lives and the ones who survived. 

I always knew about Pearl Harbor but to hear the stories of survivors make me realize how deep of a debt we owe them. 

One story especially grabbed my attention. I was listening to the radio about 9 months ago when I heard about a survivor, Don Stratton I then immediately called my dad, an author, Ken Gire. I said “dad, you have to write this man’s story.”


I’m still in wonderment that he jumped on the story. So, here I am 9 months later, in Hawaii with my dad and survivor, Don Stratton of the U.S.S. Arizona and his amazing family. 


The press surrounding this book has been phenomenal. It is a heartfelt gripping story. The book title is All the Gallent Men.  You can find this book in Walmart, Target, Costco, Sam’s Club and Barnes and Noble. You can also click here and buy it on Amazon. It is already a best seller. 

I hope you love the book as much as I do. This weekend I will select one random subscriber to my blog to win a signed copy of this book. It is signed by Donald Stratton and Ken Gire. Please subscribe and I will announce the winner this weekend. Aloha!πŸŒ΄πŸ™‚πŸŒΊ
