    Thanks for correcting the spelling error. Clarence lives in PA, so it makes sense that the first 2 dates would be there. He was traveling quite a bit this past fall. In November he was at Fort Benning for the dedication of the 3rd AD monument. While there he was presented with the Order of St. George and an enlarged and framed photo taken of him test firing his T26. I didn't ask permission, but I think my cousin won't mind me posting a couple of photos from the occasion.

    Here is Clarence with his daughter after receiving the Order of St. George and the framed photo:

    And here is a close up of the inset seen in the bottom left corner of the frame:

    Got my copy in the mail yesterday:

    Spearhead-cover.jpg Spearhead-reverse.jpg

    My apologies for the less than adequate quality [of the photos]. My phone has a lousy camera. Haven't been able to start reading it yet, but hope to get a start on it this evening.

    I just heard from Clarence's daughter that Spearhead is #4 on the NYT Hardcover Nonfiction list. :dance3: It's also #4 on the Combined Print & eBook list.
