Thu Jul 12, 2018 17:05

Hi, everyone.

I know it's little self-serving, but I wanted to let members of TT know that 'Bones of My Grandfather: Reclaiming a Lost Hero of World War II,' my book about my grandfather, Tarawa Medal of Honor recipient Alexander Bonnyman, Jr., and the remarkable efforts by History Flight, Inc., to recover the MIAs of Tarawa, is now available at any bookstore or online bookseller.

If you'd like to learn more about the book, please visit Or feel free to email me any time at claybonnyman (at) gmail, and I would love to answer any questions you have.

I've put a lot of my heart into this book, but more than anything, I want the true story of History Flight's amazing work work that *no* other organization has done be recognized.

Thank you kindly.

    • Very excited to get my copy today, gorgeous dust jacket. Already buried in it. I know my own grandpa was around Bonnyman's hill at the time. This book means a lot to me, can't wait to finish it up.... more
