Dear Bill,

I read your book, Operation Crossroads – Lest We Forget! stem to stern the same day it arrived. It sure brought back memories and some I didn’t know about, like the beer shack and the warm beer.

I have a grandson who did a lot of homework on the USS Fall River. He even made a nice plaque for me with pictures of the ship and the atomic bomb tests. I’d appreciate if you would send him a signed copy of your book and I’m enclosing a check to cover it.

My wife and I would love to invite you and Sandra to visit us. We have a small guest cottage stocked with anything you might need.

—Your Fall River shipmate, Dick Camp, “N” Division

Available from Amazon Operation Crossroads, Lest We Forget! An Eyewitness Account, Bikini Atomic Bomb Tests 1946, by William L. McGee with Sandra V. McGee. Paperback or Kindle editions.

  1. Ah, again! How fabulous the acknowledgement … adding such a specialness & confirmation of your efforts, Bill & Sandra. And I’m sure you would hear from so many more of your ‘mates’ if still alive. You deserve to feel very proud of yourselves! 🤗 I am!
