This Week

This week Issues is happy too introduce two exceptional men, who have agreed to share their talent with Issues readers; Jerry from the U.S.A. and Nathan from Australia.

About Jerry.......

I am now resident in a nursing home/rehab center, having suffered a stroke in 1994. Otherwise I am in good health with all normal appetites. I am quite new at the computer entity. I am an old soldier, a former professional baseball player, my interests are not too varied but they are intense. I was considered tall, dark, and passable at one time. The ladies at this facility all appear to be interested; unfortunately I'm not at this stage of life. I've also written before as a scribe for a renowned newspaper; and been the proprietor of an upscale restaurant.

About Nathan.....

Nathan Hancock is a second year Journalism/Politics student at Deakin University, Geelong, Australia. He is the grandson of World War 2 veteran the late Cliff Hancock of Donald, Victoria. Nathan is also an Affiliate Member of Victoria's Returned and Servicemen’s League (R.S.L) and was guest speaker at his town's Anzac Day commemoration. His story of former Donald boy Edgar Henderson is a research assignment for Nathan's journalism course at university. It is an extensive account of the No.1 Squadron R.A.A.F, of which Edgar Henderson was a member. Mr. Henderson is the only remaining member of the captured No.1 Squadron who still attends the Shrine of Remembrance, Melbourne, to commemorate the fall of Singapore.

Both of these men have written extremely informative articles. I am particularly interested in bringing you what they have to say on the World War II era first, and that is where we shall begin. They have both also offered other fantastic articles. I can easily see that Nathan will be a world renowned journalist in the near future. Jerry on the other hand has written essays in addition to his information regarding WWII which depicts his true humorist nature; I can see a Jerry's Wit & Witticisms Best Seller looming on the horizon.

I welcoming these two authors, thanking them for their generous contributions to Issues Ezine, and hope to continuously run articles from these two for many many editions!!!! Thank you both for your generosity.

Our first story from Nathan
THE LAST LINK TO A DYING LEGACY

When former Japanese prisoner of war, Edgar Henderson, gave a 15 year-old school girl some of his old war books for an assignment, he was not surprised that the girl’s mother abused him and called him a liar, saying young girls should not read about such things. Continued......

Our First Story From Jerry
FREEDOM - AN ELUSIVE WORD

In 1762 Catherine the Great took over the Romanov throne in Russia. She was a German princess, married into the Russian nobility and eventually took charge of Russia at a time when it was still living just a step above the Stone Age. To make matters worse, invaders such as the Mongols had come into Russia. (Their influence can still be seen in those areas east of the Urals.) Continued...

Last week Issues shared one of our recent winning entries in Rememory's competitions. This week we shall share a second place winning entry.

'I did it again'

I’ve gone an done it again – I know I’ve said it over and over – NO MORE PETS – But, I couldn’t help myself. She is just 6 weeks old, a ball of fur with BIG BLUE eyes and the softest, most pathetic meow I have ever heard. Continued .....

The article from a past edition of Issues, entitled: A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Chills based on The Fort George Ghost Tour, won third place in Rememory's I Think I Saw A Ghost Competition.
