Many of members of the greatest generation are around us and a unique historian like Ms. Weigand makes their story available to future generations. Hopefully, Texas Republic Publishers will keep 'TEXAS WOMEN IN WORLD WAR II' available for many years to come. Like Stephen Ambrose's 'Band Of Borthers' it is a treasured reference that should not be over-looked
