“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!”
— Ed Dixon
“If you enjoy biographies, grab this book and settle down for a great read. Go on the journey beginning in rural Georgia and if you have the chance, get to Sun City, Florida to meet this amazing gentleman in person. Great story!”
— Brian Pomeroy, USAF (Ret.)
