Thousand Letters Home
6:00 pm, Tuesday, May 19
One WWII Soldier's Story of War, Love and Life: the WWII Correspondence of Aarol W. "Bud" Irish.

Teresa Irish's presentation of "A Thousand Letters Home" took our group of veterans back in time to WWII and the life many of them experienced as members of the "Greatest Generation". Her reaction to finding and reading her father's letters and the retelling of her family's story through those letters were emotional experiences that she freely shares with her audience. Everyone in attendance enjoyed the presentation and sharing Teresa's experiences.
- J. C. Sosa, Secretary/Treasurer, MI Chapter 101st Airborne Division Association

Come hear what audiences around Michigan are raving about.

Born in Saginaw, MI, Teresa Irish is a 1984 graduate of Michigan State University. She has worked in higher education administration, the staffing industry, and most recently as a vice-president for a national home healthcare and hospice company. Five-and-a-half years after finding the letters, Teresa brought A Thousand Letters Home to print. As the book’s author, publisher and distributor, this has truly been a labor of love. The book has been printed in hardcover, softcover and e-book formats. Teresa retired in April, 2012 to devote her time to sharing the story through speaking engagements and book events. She has been featured at over 135 venues and has appeared on ABC News, NPR, Veterans’ Radio, Frontlines of Freedom, Military Author Radio, and the nationally syndicated National Defense radio show.
