New Book a Wonderful Tribute to Town

June 19, 2014 at 12:40 PM

To the Editor:

Outstanding, outstanding, outstanding is the only word that can be used for Bruce Doorly's best achievement with his latest book Raritan's Finest Hour "The Story of Raritan During World War II," with historical consultants John Pacifico and Peter Vitelli.

This is a wonderful tribute to our town, our history and what it feels like to have been raised in that era in Raritan. There was and still is such pride. The memories brought out in the book make history come alive and tears to the eyes.

The writer and contributors to the book deserve a monument of praise and thanks. Everyone should have a copy, share it with their family and friends and pass it down. I know that is what I am going to do.

Sincerely,

Joyce Valeri Walker
