Atomic Veterans Convention, Las Vegas, Sept 14

How is this for shelf placement ... signed copies of "Operation Crossroads - Lest We Forget!" displayed in the Museum store next to "Ideas and Opinions" by Albert Einstein.

Not bad for shelf placement … signed copies of “Operation Crossroads – Lest We Forget!” displayed in the Museum store on the shelf under “Ideas and Opinions” by Albert Einstein.

Bill and I were in Las Vegas last week for the annual convention of the National Association of Atomic Veterans (NAAV) a non-profit Veterans Service Organization founded in 1979 for the purpose of assisting America’s atomic vets secure proof of their participating in ionizing radiation exposure events while on active duty. Though our trip was cut short and Bill missed his booksigning/ speaking op, before we returned home the next day, we made a brief visit to the National Atomic Testing Museum, an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution.

  1. Bill & Sandra: To be visually displayed in recognition of your fine works along with Albert Einstein guarantees your literary prowess! Good going!

    Sorry your trip was cut short. Hope everything ok.

    Sending very best to you both, Suzi
