Chuck Knox developed a love of history, as a child, from his
mother when she would relate stories of a rebel great grandmother
and a great grandfather who served in the Union Army.
He is a retired Senior Purchasing Officer from the University of
Illinois and since his retirement he has pursued his lifelong
passion of preserving stories of everyday heroes that saved this
country. He has known veterans from the Spanish-American War, World
War I and II, Korea and Viet Nam. The Muted Trumpet's Call is the
fourth in a series of books on veterans from the Heartland.
He was selected Outstanding Citizen of the Year by the
Department of Illinois, Veterans of Foreign Wars for his work for
veterans. He received an Honorable Discharge from the United States
Naval Reserve as a Radioman 2 serving 8 years. During this time he
served on several WWII destroyers and met many WWII veterans.
This book is dedicated to the young Americans of the 1940's.
These young people were thrust into situations that they or none
of us could imagine. How they handled themselves and saved our
country are stories worthy of legend and should not be forgotten.
As they arrive at their final destination, I am sure they will hear
the words, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant."
May God bless them and may God save the Republic."
We should not be sad that such men are dead but rather be
thankful that such men lived. Lt. Gen. George S. Patton Jr.
