Christian’s experience as a veteran is an intricate part of his character while in Vietnam with Nachi and Hai. With Veterans Day this week, I’m teaming up with my friends, Steve and Trisha Castraberti, for a book signing fundraiser on November 10th from 6:00PM – 9:00PM at their restaurant, Prince Pizzeria, in Saugus. The proceeds from each book bought now and through the end of Veterans Day on November 11th will be matched by myself and Emily, up to $1,000. We are already more than halfway to this goal!
All funds raised will benefit local disabled veterans through the Massachusetts Elks Association in support of the Disabled Veterans Service Committee.
