National Association of Atomic Veterans, Las Vegas, Sept 14, 2016

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 Bill McGee’s “Operation Crossroads – Lest We Forget!” displayed in the National Atomic Testing Museum store on the shelf under Albert Einstein’s “Ideas and Opinions”.

Las Vegas, Nevada, September 14, 2016 – The National Association of Atomic Veterans (NAAV) held their annual convention in Las Vegas, Nevada. NAAV was founded in 1979 for the purpose of assisting America’s atomic veterans secure proof of their exposure to ionizing radiation while on active duty.

The convention hotel was located within walking distance of the National Atomic Testing Museum, an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution. We toured the museum with the NAAV group. Bill signed copies of his recently published naval memoir Operation Crossroads, Lest We Forget! An Eyewitness Account, Bikini Atomic Bomb Tests 1946.

The book was published in 2016 to mark the 70th Anniversary of Operation Crossroads, the first postwar atomic bomb tests at the Bikini Atoll in 1946. Bill was one of the 42,000 scientists, military, and civilian personnel at Crossroads.
