I did an article about this experience and sent it out free to as many magazine publishers that I thought might take it. Unfortunately, and probally due to its size, it never made any of the nationals.

In keeping with the Forum threads, I am aware that many of you run on patriotism as well as fish fever. Should any of you desire it, simply send me an e-mail at alaskanauthor@comcast.net and I will be glad to forward it on to you.

This certainly is not a sour grapes post. Simply put, the publishing business is highly competitive and managed, and it is tough to get submissions to print. (That's why I'm now my own publisher of what I write)

Anyhow, it's interesting stuff, and pays tribute to the Kodiak community in behalf of our wounded veterans. Glad to give it up to anyone who wants it...
