Canby author signing books at Cutsforth's
Ken Buckles will be at Cutsforth's Thriftway on Saturday, Nov. 7, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. to talk about and sign his new book, "Remembrance."
"Remebrance Volume I, Remembering My Veteran Friends and Guests from Living History Days," is a unique book about many American veterans' personal stories, some of which even their spouses, children or grandchildren have never heard. The author, a retired high school teacher and coach, motivated by the suicide of his Marine father who suffered PTSD from the Korean War, first started a program called Living History Day at Milwaukie High School in 1996. And this program for 24 years brought veterans from all over the United States to high schools in Oregon to share with students their military experiences during times of war."
