The American Vision – Ghosts of Iwo Jima – With Special Guests, Author Joe Jennings, Major, USMC Retired & His Dog Gunny


By TLB Contributing Author & TLBTV Show Host: Bill Muckler

Joe Jennings, Major, USMC Retired and his dog Gunny tell their story on The American Vision. For the past ten years, Joe and his eleven-year-old Golden Retriever, Gunny, have been members of Great Basin K9 Search and Rescue in northern Utah. They are certified for avalanche search, wilderness live-find, wilderness cadaver, water search, and human remains detection. They have been on more than seventy searches throughout the Inter-mountain West and Oregon and have participated in several finds.

Joe spent almost two years of combat in Vietnam as an enlisted Marine and received a commission as a 2nd Lieutenant upon his graduation from the University of Virginia. His experiences as a Marine and a K9 handler have been the primary influences on his writing. In his first novel, Ghosts of Iwo Jima, his experiences, combined with his love for dogs and the USMC, form the core of his story telling. Joe’s stories have a ring of truth to them because he has “been there and done that.”

Joe is currently working on a sequel to Ghosts titled Ghosts of the Buffalo Wheel, which will tell the story of a search for a grave high in the Bighorn Mountains of Wyoming. Even the ghost stories are grounded in ancient religious and cultural beliefs. If you are a discerning reader of realistic fiction you must give this new author a look.

Joe and Betsy, his wife of forty-seven years, along with Gunny, live in the mountains of northern Utah. They have two children and four grandchildren.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … TLB
