Ronald Powers - Author of "One Man in Ten Million"
I was born and raised in Jersey Shore Pa. where I graduated from high school. I am an Air Force veteran and a graduate of Lycoming College. I earned my teaching certificate from Wilson College and have recently retired from the Greencastle-Antrim School District. I currently reside in Greencastle with my wife, Beth and my four children Ben, Lauren, Annie and Sam. One Man in Ten Million is my first book.
Inspiration: My dad never talked much about the war which is typical of most WWII veterans. But before he died he did open up a little about the sacrifices made by those that served. I felt after researching that the story of an individual soldier needed to be told. I am afraid that current generations won't know of or understand the degree of sacrifice these men and women made during the war. My dad's story isn't exceptional in it's uniqueness but is exceptional in it's normalcy.
