"An Airman’s Journey" relates the heartwarming account of 25 years’ service in the U.S. Air Force, spanning post World War II years to Vietnam. Told through personal pictures and prose, this all-encompassing memoir presents the remarkable story of Robert M. Fletcher, Sr., Major USAF (ret.).

According to the author, “This book was written for my sons and their families. I feel it may be of interest to many veterans of the time periods involved. As of this writing, I am 84 years old. I’m healthy and enjoying life. I have been very fortunate. I have two successful sons with great families. I am now the oldest in my family of 13 brothers and sisters as there are only four of us left. After retiring from the Air Force, I taught at Fort Walton High School (Florida) for 23 years. I taught mostly physics, also, math, earth science, physical science, and meteorology.”

For a look back at “the good old days” and at “The Greatest Generation” – a term coined by Tom Brokaw to describe those who grew up during the Great Depression and World War II – read "Always A New Adventure."

Says Robert Fletcher, CEO of Strategic Book Publishing and Rights Agency, “As the CEO and owner of a mid-sized publishing company, when my father said, ‘Son, I’ve written my memoirs,’ I shuddered, knowing what was next. At the same time, I knew I had to deliver before his 85th birthday, so the race was on. It’s been an incredibly fun project and quite a family connector. I am pleased beyond belief at how this memoir looks and feels. His is truly ‘a life well lived.’ It has been my sincere personal pleasure to publish Always a New Adventure. And now, I have to go create his business cards and press release and set up some book signings because he wants to get out there and sell it. Go Dad, go!”
