MOUNT PLEASANT MILLS —
In March 2012 Hokenbrough and his wife Leah were able to visit Europe.
“It was neat to see where grandpa crossed the Rhine and fought in the Bulge. However, being at Dachau, a concentration camp outside of Munich, the air is just heavy with the feeling of death,” he said.
The Middleburg High School graduate finished the book after his own father passed away last June.
He says his grandfather has read the book since it was printed the end of 2012.
“He was very grateful. I feel that it was a relief for him to get his story out to the family, even though it was painful in the process.”
Hokenbrough wants readers to envision this wartime story with gratitude of their own.
“Like the title says, every soldier has a story. We do a disservice to our veterans when we don’t recognize the horrors they witnessed in protecting our country and preserving our freedoms,” he said.
Lincoln Hokenbrough and Clarence Hibbs will sign copies of their book 10:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. Saturday March 2 at Guardian Angel Bookstore in Richfield. Copies of the book will also be for sale at that time and are also available on lulu.com and Cruiser’s Café in Mt. Pleasant Mills.
