“Well, I finally took the time to read “The 508
Connection” from cover to cover, and I thank you for such fine work. I had read
many of the stories individually (stories of men I had come to know through our
reunions, in addition to Rigger buddies like John Kersh), but reading them in
proper sequence from Blanding to Frankfurt added a meaningful perspective.
