Authors of the book, “Legacies of the Silver State: Nevada Goes to War” are making the rounds promoting their latest work. The authors are Steve Ranson and Ken Beaton. Their book features the stories of 71 WWII veterans who served our country. The authors have donated more than $11,000 of their book's proceeds to Jon Yuspa, CEO, Honor Flight Nevada. When it is safe to travel again, 11 vets will fly to Washington, D.C. to visit the WWII memorials in our nation's capital.

Steve Ranson and Ken Beaton have begun interviewing Vietnam veterans for their next book. If you know a Nevada Vietnam vet who has a story to share when he or she was “in country," contact Ken at 775-721-4738 or Steve at 775-427-0960.
