Presentation in Wanaque
Permalink Closed

Kimberly Nielsen did 2 terrific presentions for our Wanaque, NJ community on Nov 13, 2008.  I have heard nothing but raves and compliments over the multi-media presentaion.  I recommend it highly to any school, community or veterns organization.  We had Don Blum, an Indy survivor and Bill Van Wilpe, an rescuer from the USS Bassett who received the US Navy and Marine Corps Medal for Heroism in 2005 for his heroic actions during the rescue.  I am a Councilman in Wanaque and I helped the Wanaque VFW see to it that Bill was properly honored.  I also wrote a book on the whole story entitled, "60 YEARS LATER, A SMALL TOWN DISCOVERS A HERO IN THEIR MIDST, by Tom Balunis
My book is on sale at Barnes and Noble.com, Amazon.com and Iconicpublishing.com.  I think any history buff would enjoy it.  It contains a lot of information on the rescue I gained directly from Mr. Bill Van Wilpe.
