    In 2004 I was fortunate to meet a man, Lynn R. Forshee, who had enlisted in the Navy in 1940 and became a pilot. He wrote a book about his experiences and self-published it. It's called "Standby, Mark" in reference to what the bombardier would call out during a steep dive when it was time to pull out of the dive.

    His stories were so fascinating that I asked to see the book. I found it a great read. I asked him if I could place this book on the web so others could see it. He agreed. It's at Standby,* Mark - A Book by Lynn Forshee

    Lynn has since passed away, and I have no financial interest in this. But I would like others to have a chance to read his story.

    My question -- what is a good way to find others who might be interested in this brief book?

    That would be great. Lynn's book site has no ads and is not selling anything. It just has his book about his WWII experiences.

    Thanks very much for offering to post some links to this topic.
