5.0 out of 5 stars Time in the Prop Blast Jan. 1 2014
By Cheryl Roos - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
To read such a compelling story, and know that it is from true life experiences, makes it even better to read. Funny as heck in some places and the saddest emotions and experience that this family endures, and to come out on the other side intact. A great look into the past. .I love this book! I gave several as gifts as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Lovely Memoir of a Life Well Lived Feb. 6 2014
By B. Ray - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I had a great time reading this book. I met Mr. Edwards at our local gym when he mentioned that he noticed I was always reading and he wondered how I decided what to read next. We chatted for some time and he let me know that he was having his first book published in December. I love to meet local authors and it was fun to touch base with every week to see what progress had been made. He brought me a picture of the cover they had decided on and it was touching to see how excited he was (well--who wouldn't be--to publish your first book when your in your 80's). During the holidays I missed him and then about 2 weeks ago, he scared me to death while I was reading a Dean Koontz novel--I just didn't hear him coming up behind me--and brought me a copy of his book. I finished it today and it strikes me that the book is much like the author--a beautiful example of a life well lived. Mr. Edwards enlisted in the army when he was only 15 and carried it off for over a year before they realized he was underage and sent him home. As soon as he was old enough he enlisted again and became a paratrooper, thinking that when they sent men to the moon, they'd have to have them parachute in. The book takes you through his entire military career, his meeting the love of his life and his second career choice. It is just a lovely memoir filled with good times, heartbreak, life choices and love of family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good old fashion story that will make you laugh, cry and think how in the world did that happen???? March 19 2014
By Charles E Stanford - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
What did Mark Twain say “Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities”. This book is about a life lived to it’s fullest with many twist and turns, joys and sorrows. Colonel Edwards paints a picture with his words, as he describes growing up in the South to his many experiences in the military and the true love of his family. This is a great read for anyone. As I reflect back on the book all I can think is this should be required reading for all high school students so they could understand how extended families come together to survive tough times.

5.0 out of 5 stars LINGERING IN HIS PROP BLAST Jan. 11 2014
By Jack Brister - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
WOW!!!!! Colonel/Professor Edwards brought me into his experiences of life. There were moments while reading the book I felt I was with him. Love is the dominate theme of his writings, but heartbreak finds its place throughout his life and family. The book is real and down to earth. One can not help it when tears of joy and sadness are blended together as you read the final chapters. I would strongly recommend his book to anyone trying to read something real, educational, and heart touching.

5.0 out of 5 stars While we live, let us LIVE! Dec 11 2013
By Michael D. Homiller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The story of a life well lived, a family well loved, and three deaths of an enormity that only a parent can comprehend. Colonel Edwards was a soldier of the mid 20th Century. His story will resonate with those of us who remember that America, and speak to those who don’t about many values we have sadly lost. But Dr. Edward’s most important message transcends loss. It shows that – at least for a lucky few – love can last a lifetime.
