Charley Valera has always had a fascination with WWII and its effects on those that served. Many of our fathers were WWII veterans, and we didn’t ask about their war experiences - and they kept them to themselves. Within these pages lie many glimpses into their daily lives, answering questions we didn’t ask, and for many of us, it’s too late.
Charley has been featured on NBC/NECN and national radio shows coast to coast. His writings and presentations have been featured in USA Today Magazine, Battle of the Bulge Magazine, Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association and various media, organizations and newspapers. A licensed commercial pilot, Realtor, author and public speaker, he and his wife reside in SW Florida. Many of the interviews, videos and other photos are available at www.charleyvalera.com.
