Unsung Hero

By Margaret Allyn Greene Best

“A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the

strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.”

Christopher Reeves

Unsung Hero is a memoir/biography/tribute written about an ordinary soldier who was captured and survived being a prisoner of war during WWII, went to Korea, and Vietnam, where he earned his third bronze star with valor. Every person can become somebody’s unsung hero. This book is about mine. In 2018, the book won second place in the published biography section of the Royal Palm Literary Award from the Florida Writers Association.

“ Having no ammunition left, I decided I was not about to fix my bayonet and charge the whole German army in front of me, so I dropped my rifle and stepped into the road with my hands over my head.  I was shaking with patriotism …” Pvt Albert Greene memoir WWII  page 46

Dandelion Child: A Soldier's Daughter

Military Children Grow Like Dandelions Blown By The Wind. 

This is a story of such a child. Female military brats will smile as they read, remembering their lives.

Dandelion Child: A Soldier’s Daughteris a memoir of the author’s life during the Cold War from 1947 to 1969 when she became a military wife.  All stories are true to the best of the author’s recollection and from her point of view. Tales indicate how she developed from a child, through her teen years and into adulthood and how being an Army Brat shaped her life. A section is devoted to today’s military children and how we can assure they get the help not available to earlier generations.

“ I thought of the army as being like a cake. I liked cake.” Chapter 5.

“ How dare he do this to me. Nothing ever goes right. We’re always moving when something important happens.” Chapter 14
