BirdQuill LLC, announces the release of, To The Sound Of The Guns: 1st Bn, 27th Marines from Hawaii to Vietnam 1966-1968. This is the little-known history of a 5th Marine Division Battalion of Iwo Jima WWII fame—and their seven-month odyssey of sacrifice, camaraderie, and bravery in Vietnam.

Grady Birdsong’s book is a combination of well-researched operational history and a moving account of combat experiences in Vietnam. It is both history and story. The places, the events, and most especially, the Marines and Sailors of whom the author writes, become vividly real, transporting the reader to that distant place and time. A highly-recommended addition to the record of the U. S. Marines in Vietnam.”

Carol Fortino has published her third poetry book, “Somewhere Between”. The poems hold emotions that run the gamut of relationships- beginnings, their midpoints and their resolutions. Some lines are loving, mystifying, sad, uncontrollable and even a bit sarcastic or funny. Reviewer Gary Morgan writes, “Carol’s poetry flows onto paper and into your senses with clarity, skill and nuanced rhythm that few poets master. However, it is her bravery to explore what is innermost within us all, that brings one to read and reread and remember her poems.”
