Walter "Ski" Skeldon has a new book
out. His two prior books, MINORITY CRUISE
dealt with short stories from his
crewmates and his personal
memories. This one is a departure
from them and is a history of ALL
the CVEs in the Pacific.  It is 394
pages of interesting reading about
each CVE in the Pacific Theatre.
