Miriam: Stories remain stories. Nobody can escape the hardships of life. People often told us that we should publish a book based on our life, but I feel that we all have stories.

Irving, do you keep in touch with any other veterans?

No. Most were not Shomer Shabbos, but I am a member of the Jewish War Veterans.

What message would you give to your readers?

Irving: Never give up and always have bitachon. I am proud to be from shevet Levi and I think all Jews should be proud of their heritage.

Miriam: Even though you experience challenges in life, you still need to have hope and have feelings for others.
