Welcome back to another Blue Funk episode…where I, Rachel Renee read you stories from around the country and beyond. This week I begin reading a book called The Kiwis: Unsung Heroes of WWII by a dear friend of mine, Bud Altmayer. A big thanks to his daughter Sally Enright for allowing me to read his story on the podcast.
I’m going read it roughly 2-3 chapters at a time, bi weekly. This will allow for other stories to be told in between. The Kiwis: Unsung Heroes of WWII is a story based on Bud's military experiences…in fact he would always say its 60% true and 40% fiction. If you don’t like military fiction like me…I encourage you to stick around. The military plays a big role in the story, but It plays mostly in the background…and you may be as surprised as I was.
