Captain D. Allen Butcher, author of Sixty Years in the Twentieth Century- a Pilot's Memoir will conduct a "meet the author" and book signing on Saturday, October 18th, on the Square in Murfreesboro from 9:00 AM to 12:00 noon to support local charity.
Captain Butcher has a story to tell about growing up in Tennessee, serving his country in Viet-Nam, and flying a thirty-year career with Delta Airlines, all covering the years 1939 to 1999.
Readers of this book have expressed enthusiasm for this project. As one reviewer who purchased the book on Amazon.com put it;
"The book was a glorious stroll down memory lane of a man who's life's passion is flying. From his days in the AFROTC to his Air Force flight training, flight experience in Vietnam and his career as a Delta flight engineer, first officer and finally a 767 captain the book is filled with interesting detail and insights."
Captain Butcher is retired and living here in Murfreesboro with his wife and and his Goldendoodle "Bentley."
