      Thanks for your kind offer on making your forthcoming book available to us Talk Antietam participants at publisher discount. I certainly would like to be added to your list. The more I've seen on the book, the more anxious I've become for its publication.

      Due to work requirements, it looks like I'll miss the anniversary events this year. I've participated in all the walks the last several years.

      Good luck with the final stages of the book,
