Staff Sgt. Billy Cook, a veteran of Afghanistan and Iraq, brought his family to the Army birthday and welcome home ceremony in Washington Park Friday. Tara Cook calls her husband’s 15 months in Iraq “a really long tour,” and worse for her than his more recent year in Afghanistan. Cook’s wife and three children are happy he's serving stateside as a recruiter now.
Retired Major Sario Caravalho spoke of his three tours in Vietnam and the special men with whom he served during a salute to Vietnam era veterans.
When author Brad Taylor writes his Pike Logan books, he knows what he’s writing about.

Brad Taylor joins Mark Perzel to talk about the newest Pike Logan story, Enemy of Mine, in advance of his appearance Saturday night, January 19, at Joseph Beth Booksellers in Cincinnati.
