Praise

Praise for Fighting for America
“A rare, thoughtful, and easily readable account of America’s invisible soldiers. This book speaks for the many thousands of men and women patriots whose stories remain untold.”
–JAMES MCBRIDE

Recollections from the author’s father and mother

“I think the first man in my life ever to call me an American, and say it like I was as good as any American he was likely to find, was a Jewish man. We took our trucks to get them out of the concentration camps. I had just got out of the truck, and a Jewish man, who looked like a dead man walking, came right up to me. He called me ‘American,’ and he fell into my arms. He hugged me like nobody ever hugged me in my life. I would like to think this man liked me for being a good Christian, but I think he loved me for being an American.”
–S. Sgt. BILL MOORE, (3438th Quartermaster Corp, 1943—45)

“My four brothers already were serving and scattered abroad in the war– Charley was in the Philippines, Rick in Europe where he got a Purple Heart for injuries he suffered, Harry was in the Air Force, and Erskine was helping to build the Burma road where he got malaria. This was probably as much a reason as any that prompted me to think about going into the service myself. There was patriotism in my decision too, because we were a patriotic people.”
–Pfc. NORMA KAY DEFREESE MOORE (U.S. Army, 1943—45)
