As the storm clouds of a world war gathered in the spring of 1941, Maj. G. Robert Dodson said, "We've got people, we've got a place, and we're ready!" Oregonians responded to the call to arms as the United States prepared for the coming conflict. In April 1941, the Oregon National Guard's 123rd Observation Squadron became the state's first aviation unit and pioneered Oregon military aviation into the postwar Oregon Air National Guard (ORANG). In the 70 years since its start, the citizen airmen of the ORANG have served their community, state, and nation from locations in Oregon, throughout the United States, and worldwide. They stand ready today to answer the call of duty, no matter when it comes.

May 2008: The potential military application of a new intelligence-enhancing drug is explored in this tale of an experiment run out of control, rising political tension between the Eastern and Western worlds, and a seeming solution to the global energy crisis. An adventure set truly out of this world leads to a frantic search amongst ancient ruins in order to save the peoples of Earth from the forces of tyranny and ultimate annihilation... Captain Dawn DeFaller, RN, DSO, is to head a NATO convoy protection exercise in the North Atlantic Ocean involving British warships, and also a number of merchant ships from several countries. During the exercise, code named Ankara, the efficacy of an experimental intelligence-enhancing drug is to be tested on a volunteer, Commander Garry Hunt of the British destroyer HMS Diamond. Additionally, she is to assess the capabilities of a non-live version of a new type of joint British-American smart torpedo with independent operational ability. Ankara proves initially to be a great success but just prior to its climax one of the merchant ships, a large oil tanker, is crippled, seemingly accidentally. In the meantime Diamond goes missing. Dawn and her officers and colleagues must attempt to locate Diamond before Garry Hunt, her now-rogue commanding officer succeeds in destabilizing East-West relations to the point of threatening to trigger a third world war. But the intellectually enhanced Hunt proves elusive and soon sets his sights on higher goals which involve initially revealing a solution to the global energy crisis but ultimately lie beyond the constraints of planet Earth. Dawn finds herself duty-bound to proceed on a mission unlike any that she has ever undertaken before. A mission even more daring than her previous foray into the revolutionary period of 18th century north America. The place and time where she met her husband, Captain Matthew Revere of the American Continental Navy, as part of the experiment that evolved from the highly classified van der Meer Dossier.

One moment Joseph Schwartz is a happily retired tailor in Chicago, 1949. The next he's a helpless stranger on Earth during the heyday of the first Galactic Empire. Earth, as he soon learns, is a backwater, just a pebble in the sky, despised by all the other 200 million planets of the Empire because its people dare to claim it's the original home of man. And Earth is poor, with great areas of radioactivity ruining much of its soil--so poor that everyone is sentenced to death at the age of sixty. Joseph Schwartz is sixty-two. This is young Isaac Asimov's first novel, full of wonders and ideas, the book that launched the novels of the Galactic Empire, culminating in the Foundation series. This is Golden Age SF at its finest. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

This isn't an ordinary Civil War tale. It is the all-true but little-known story of Adam "Stovepipe" Johnson-Kentucky legend, Texas hero, and Confederate cavalry officer-who boldly led the first Confederate raid across the Mason-Dixon Line to capture the thriving river-port community of Newburgh, Indiana, during the American Civil War. Not a shot was fired. With the politically divided landscape of Civil War Kentucky and the steamboat economy of the Ohio River as its backdrop, this is the historically accurate account of surprise nocturnal strikes, opportunistic military occupations, and a swashbuckling Rebel icon's daring daylight invasion into the Northern homeland that sealed the fate of western Kentucky for the remainder of the war. Vivid, thorough, and painstakingly researched, Thunder from a Clear Sky documents five critical weeks of 1862 Civil War history and shares the untold tale of one man's immeasurable impact on a nation at war. "A fascinating account of how a skilled former Indian fighter gathered a few Kentucky rebels and 'woke up' the slumbering Indiana Home Guard." -Evansville Courier & Press Book Reviews "An important and, until now, largely neglected story about the American Civil War... Thunder from a Clear Sky stands as a fresh and important contribution in a field long studied."-Professor Randy K.

This exploration of the noncombatants who earned the love and respect of the doughboys should appeal to armchair historians and scholars alike. Enhanced with photographs and an appendix summarizing the biographical information for each man, Sky Pilots is the first comprehensive look at the role of the Army chaplaincy at the divisional level. In August 1917, the U.S. 26th “Yankee” Division was formally activated for service in World War I. When the soldiers arrived in France, they were accompanied by more than three dozen volunteer chaplains. These clergymen experienced all the horrors of war, shared all the privations of the common soldier, and earned the love and affection of their “boys.” Two died, several were gassed or wounded, and many were decorated by France and the United States for their heroism, yet their stories have been lost to history. Through extensive research in published and archival sources, as well as firsthand materials obtained from the families of several chaplains, Michael E. Shay brings to life the story of these valiant men—a story of courage in the face of the horrors of war and of extreme devotion to the men they served. Just as important, Sky Pilots follows the chaplains home and on to their subsequent careers. For many, their war experiences shaped their ministries, particularly in the area of ecumenism and the Social Gospel. Others left the ministry altogether. To fill in the chaplains’ stories, Shay also examines the evolution of the U.S. Army Chaplain Corps, the education of the newly appointed chaplains, and the birth of the Yankee Division.
