"In addition to witnessing the attack on Pearl Harbor, he saw
service on a destroyer, submarine, cruiser, aircraft carrier,
including the Battles of Coral Sea and Midway, and eventually
aviation duties in Alaska.  Truly not the usual war experiences of
a member of his generation."

                        Jack A. Green, Public Affairs Officer
                              The Naval Historical Center           
"Radioman is a compelling, action-filled story that moves quickly, while offering a
rich array of interpretive notes and timelines for great reflection and substance."

"Fate put Ray Daves in the middle of several defining moments in United
States military history. In Carol Edgemon Hipperson's latest book we learn
of the sights, the sounds and even smells that Daves experienced during
his 6 years, 4 months, 17 days, sixteen hours, and forty-two seconds in the
US Navy.  Memories brought to life again in Hipperson's
Radioman."  --
