Brothers, there is a new book out that deal with the unbelievable conditions the men were subjected to while they were on LZ Kate. The Author paints a very vivid picture of what life was like for the men on Kate. The book covers everything from Day 1 to the Escape and Evasion of Kate at the end of October 1969. It s an excellent read and you needn't have been there to be really touched by this book. - Dick Pederson
