Featured Book: Extraordinary Experiences of Jake Van York by Claude Peterson Jr.

About the book:

This is the story of one young man’s rise through adolescence, austerity, and obscurity, to become one highly decorated, senior-ranking enlisted military member and operative in the defense of our nation. It tells of his struggles and victories in the fight against cold-war communism and present-day global terrorism and also provides us with insight into his contributions involving numerous and continuous global military combat operations. Most important of all, this book reveals the existence of one tiny but highly sophisticated acoustical device, heretofore virtually unknown to humankind, and its unique role in defending our great nation.

Extraordinary Experiences of Jake Van York weaves elements of love, compassion, and intrigue into a fascinating story of patriotism and personal courage.
