  The Miracle of the North Platte Canteen  
Hear how a small town of 12,000 people in the middle of Nebraska welcomed and fed six million traveling WWII soldiers 20 hours/day for four years at a Union Pacific Depot.   It’s the most amazing story you’ve never heard.   (I’ve done this presentation over 30 times in three years; it is very popular.)

“The Mason Christian Village Veterans’ Association enjoyed and appreciated your first-class presentation on Miracle of the North Platte Canteen you made to us.  We were amazed that such a small rural town could do so much for our troops headed for overseas duty.”    Harold Rice, Mason Christian Village Veterans’ Association


“The Miracle of the North Platte Canteen” is  wonderful praise of the American Spirit in support of the troops, right after Pearl Harbor. She is especially impressed by events, when ordinary people unite and rise to help others – in times of need. She has researched several examples of such compassion to extra depths, adding extra credence to her stories.”   Peter & Gudrun Seifert, Brown’s Run Country Club, Middletown Ohio

  The Goodness of Gander
This is simply a story of people doing good. Hear how the citizens of Gander Newfoundland, hosted 6,500 people for four days on one hour’s notice beginning on America’s worst day, September 11, 2001.
