Our guest today is Author Donald Greco. Don has completed four of the five stories in his masterful series called The Youngstown Quintet.  We will be discussing today his newest Novel and how he creates his characters. The last, yet untitled, novel of the Quintet will be published soon.

Greco’s stories are not the kinds of novels that are currently in vogue.  There are no spies, vampires, zombies, space aliens, super beings, or bodice rippers.  Instead, the Quintet consists of unrelated stories that are about ordinary people who lead extraordinary lives.

 

 

 

His readers are drawn into the stories by his wonderful characters and find themselves transported into the world in which the stories exist, all of them in Youngstown, Ohio, in various times of the 20th century.  And yet the pages seem to turn quickly as the characters lead each other through the novels.

 

 

 

His natural writing style is strong yet unadorned and an easy read.  And his characters come to life in the readers’ imaginations, sometimes seeming to jump off the pages as each story unwinds.  And finally, there are realistic and enchanting love stories that form the backbone of each of the novels in the Quintet. All four current novels of the Youngstown Quintet are available, both in book form and as Kindle editions, from Amazon.  Search them on Amazon by “Donald Greco” or “The Youngstown Quintet.” For more information go to dongreconovels.com

Our guest today is  Dr. William Scott Magill, Executive Director of “Veterans In Defense of Liberty” (VIDOL) discusses Veterans In Defense Of Liberty’s® Cav Division, Liberty Riders of America,™ announces the first Annual Missouri’s Vietnam Wall Run 2019. Kickstands up in Missouri to Honor Americas POW/MIA and Vietnam Veterans

Springfield, MO — (June 11, 2019) ─  Veterans In Defense of Liberty’s® (ViDoL) Board of Directors voted unanimously in favor of Liberty Riders of America™ (LRA) taking up the torch for the Midwest that was carried faithfully by Rolling Thunder, Inc® on the national level for 32 years. The affirmative vote authorized Liberty Riders of America™ to organize and coordinate the inaugural 256-mile ride from Springfield, MO to the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Perryville, MO. Future Rides will take place annually on the Saturday immediately following “The United States’ National POW/MIA Recognition Day,” which is on the third Friday of September each year.
Recalling the words of Calvin Coolidge, “The nation which forgets its defenders will be itself forgotten. Dr. William S. Magill, president, and Executive Director, stated, “Missouri’s ‘Sister Wall’ is identical to the one in Washington D.C., a permanent, full-sized Vietnam Veterans Memorial. It will provide millions of Americans, including veterans, who cannot go to Washington, D.C., the opportunity to experience the power the Wall has on national healing, remembrance, and honor. It is a fitting tribute to our brothers and sister who freely gave their lives for freedom, as well as our POW/MIA, with the same solemn celebration of their service and sacrifice as we have in Washington for the past 32 years. We will always remember, and we will always ride for them and the moral example they embody. Ut Prosim – that I may serve, de oppresso liber – to free the oppressed.”
On Saturday, September 21st, at 0800 hrs, we anticipate 400-500 motorcycles will go Kickstands up launching the “1st Annual State-Wide Missouri Vietnam Wall Run 2019.” Accompanying Bikes and other vehicles will be a tour bus provided for Vietnam veterans who cannot otherwise make the trip. A total of 12 law enforcement motorcycles will escort the ride; eight from Springfield Police Department, two from Joplin Police Department and two from the Missouri Highway Patrol. Joining the core group along the route will be groups from Kansas City, Saint Louis, Illinois, Iowa, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and other states. Also joining the ride will be those participating in the Perryville, MO “Bikers on the Square” event.
Many towns along the route are making plans to turn out their communities in full fanfare, with overpass and roadway demonstrations of support that will include citizens and firetrucks with flags, as well as police and other emergency vehicles.
The Missouri Highway Patrol anticipates some 5,000 motorcycles or more at the Vietnam Memorial Wall for the official event. This historical ride is open to all who wish to honor America’s POW/MIA, Vietnam veterans, and our Liberty they sacrificed to preserve.   For more information go to  https://vidolamerica.org/
