    A Million Thanks to Ed Gooding

    I have not yet had an opportunity to read Ed Gooding's book, but being the only son of the James Montgomery mentioned in the 15 September article which has appeared in reviews, all I can say to Ed is thanks a million for recording in such detail the happenings of 15 September 1959 in Houston, Texas. I know of no other account of that date that begins to tell the human side of that ordeal for all of us who were so closely associated with the tragedy. So on behalf of all of James Montgomery's Grand and Great Grand Children - thanks a million for recording the details of their Grandfather's heroism.

    A Real American Story

    Edgar Gooding has spent his life working for the citizens of this Nation. First as a soldier in WWII then as a peace officer. He has constantly placed his life on the line to protect our freedoms. The book is not only a good read but should make you wish you could shake Ed Gooding's hand and say thank you...
