Civil Air Patrol, World War Two & the ESVA

We, the many, owe so much to the few. There was an almost forgotten time ago when German u boats prowled off the Eastern Seaboard of the United States. Only those living on the Eastern Shore of Virginia and the Outer Banks of North Carolina understood how precarious was our freedom.

Nightly, they watched in horror as the u boats sank freighters and passenger ships. The Civil Air Patrol, with bases from Florida to New Jersey, was established to locate the German wolf pack and target them before they could target Allied shipping. The CAP kept watch over the coastline until sabotage and invasion was no longer a threat, breaking the backbone of Nazi aggression in the Americas.

When the late Billy Davis of ESVA took my husband on a quick side trip to see an old World War 2 airstrip, the idea for The Bachelor’s Unexpected Family was born.
