Thirty-five long years and I was still seeking

 

answers. If I could make someone in the government listen

 

to the facts, I knew they’d want to act on them. After all,

 

who wouldn’t want to find one of our POW/MIAs from the

 

Vietnam War?

 

     IS ANYBODY LISTENING? tells of dignitaries, presidents

 

and those involved with the POW/MIA issue as I’ve known it

 

since November 1968 when my husband, a Special Forces

 

officer, became missing-in-action.

 

     The pages reveal my feelings and torment during my

 

many trips to Southeast Asia in search of answers, and my

 

frustrations while wandering the halls of Washington D.C.

 

for help.

 

     The book was written to show the issue’s insidious

 

cover-up and my commitment to the truth.
