In keeping with the Memorial Day celebrations, the Newark Rotary club invited a local war veteran and author to speak. “Paratroopers do or die” was written by Don Jakeway the original member of the 508 Parachute infantry, a veteran or Normandy, Holland and the Battle of the Bulge. There are over 50 thousand Americans soldiers who are still buried on foreign soil and Jakeway says his book tells the stories in memory of those men. To buy a copy of the book for twenty dollars send a request to Don Jakeway, 196 Saratoga Drive, Johnstown, OH 43031.
