Mary Woods interviewed us for the Archbishop’s Hour radio program that will air May 22 and May 28. We enjoyed talking about how Joseph Quintero’s religious faith and concern for his fellow soldiers helped sustain him as a prisoner of war.
Our book got an enthusiastic reception at the Descendants Group Convention of the American Defenders of Bataan and Corregidor May 2-5 in Albuquerque. It was an honor to meet some of the World War II veterans, and we learned a lot from other researchers and authors. Preserving the memories of that corner of our history and telling the stories of these heroes is important, and we hope our book will help.
Thanks to everyone who dropped in to chat (and buy books) at the Hastings bookstore March 23. Some folks bought the book as a gift for veterans in their families. The west side Hastings is nearly out of books. If you missed buying one ask your local bookstore to order it, buy a copy online or, if you’re in Albuquerque, contact us for a signed copy.
Around 150 people attended our launch party March 9, in a celebration of Joseph O. Quintero’s life at the Raymond G. Sanchez Community Center in Albuquerque. Our thanks to the Quintero family for a festive event.
