PublishAmerica Presents "Memoirs of an American Sailor" by Fred Wilber

Frederick, MD, March 24, 2007 --( PublishAmerica is proud to present Memoirs of an American Sailor: Skivvy Waver by Oswego, New York author Fred Wilber. Young sailor Fred Wilber, from small town Minetto, New York, anesthetized by immaturity and protected by immortality, revisits Navy life from 1944 to 1946. His story is a nostalgic and sometimes poignant nautical saga, delivered in the vernacular of adolescence. His recall of sailors on shore leave in ports of call from Boston to Tokyo will stir the memory of the way things were during the World War II years.

Fred Wilber graduated from New York State College at Oswego in 1950. Fate magazine published his first short story the same year, and Leswing Publishers produced his children’s reader in 1965. For over a decade, The Valley News of Fulton, New York, has published his weekly columns. He was born in Syracuse, New York, in 1926. Memoirs of an American Sailor is his first published novel.

PublishAmerica is the home of 20,000 talented authors.
