Henry Spencer Faircloth’s enlisted in the USAF as a Basic Airman in 1950. After completing OCS, he was commissioned as an officer and began a career that would include post-war rebuilding efforts in Europe, training airmen on two continents to help win the Space Race, and writing letters for Presidents Johnson and Nixon. Faircloth’s distinguished military career would culminate in a Presidential appointment as Executive Director of the Jobs For Veterans Committee, another globe-spanning vocation that introduced Spencer to a plethora of powerbrokers and history makers in politics, the military, business, and entertainment.

“Lt Col Faircloth takes us on a journey from the Depression era South to the halls of the White House. From growing up down the road from Carter to working with a famous Tuskegee Airman to running a committee in the Nixon White House… you get up close and personal portraits of some of the biggest names of the 20th century. Fantastic read!”
