It was my honor to have my most recent book, "GJ - A World War II Memoir" accepted for sale in the gift shop at the Southwest Florida Military Museum in Fort Myers, Florida. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the sale of the book in the gift store will go toward supporting museum operations. I am proud to support such a worthy cause.
George Joseph Schiffer (my father-in-law) was one of the 14 million or so men and women who answered the call to serve their country after the attack on Pearl Harbor. GJ's exploits in the war included dropping depth charges on Nazi submarines lurking off the coast of Florida and participating in the Invasion of the Philippines and the Battle of Okinawa. Rising quickly to become a Chief Quartermaster, GJ was known as a no-nonsense sailor who simply got the job done.
