National Association of 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 Albert Einstein’s “Ideas and Opinions”.

Bill and I went to Las Vegas 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 veterans secure proof of their exposure to ionizing radiation while on active duty.

  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
