Everyday Heroes: GAIL HALVORSEN

March 1, 2014

A friend recently shared this story with me and I felt it would bring happiness and inspiration to all the followers of my EVERYDAY HEROES blog.

Gail Halvorsen’s actions after World War II in Germany were unselfish and generous, and left an indelible impression on the children he benefitted. He saw people in need and decided to make a difference in their lives.

After the Soviets cut off land access to West Berlin, the United States and Britain took steps to keep the people of West Berlin from starving. Through Operation Vittles, the two nations took heroic action to benefit the citizens of a country that just a few years earlier had been at war with them. In the midst of this massive airlift of food and supplies, Gail Halvorsen saw a need and stepped up to fill it.

The following presentation is both a tribute to an EVERYDAY HERO and a production that will stir and swell your heart and bring tears to your eyes. I hope you enjoy this and encourage you to do one thing today for someone in need. It will make a difference in their life and in yours as well.

Joseph Badal is the author of seven thrillers, including “The Pythagorean Solution,” ” Shell Game,” “Evil Deeds,” “Terror Cell,” “The Nostradamus Secret,” and “The Lone Wolf Agenda.” “The Lone Wolf Agenda” was the winner in the Fiction-Mystery/Thriller category of the New Mexico/Arizona Book Awards in 2013. He has been recognized as one of the 50 Best Authors You Should Be Reading.

His seventh thriller, “Ultimate Betrayal,” will be released on April 22, 2014.
