Brig. Gen. Murray Bywater's new book "B25's Target Kyushu" is very nice. If any of the second printing are still available, they can be obtained for about $27.50 plus $3.00 shipping from:

Probably everyone has received a card about the video ($29.95) that Bob Farrar shot at the Reunion in San Antonio. It is not bad, but I wish that he had cut the snow out (made it blue or something) between the segments. If you are not on his mailing list, he can be contacted at:

Bob Farrar

Dallas, TX 75206

Another video has been produced by Raines Video Productions. It is priced at $29.95 plus $2.00 S&H, for a total of $31.95. I just received this one. Good coverage of the Lackland AFB trip and the Banquet dinner. Not much else. If you did not get a notice, they can be contacted at:
