Signing with Dale Beasley of We Will Not Be Home By Christmas


We Will Not Be Home By Christmas is a collection of letters, postcards, and stories of Soldiers that were told "We'll be home by Christmas" presented in a larger format book, coffee table style.

“I am pleased to bring this book to you and hope in reading it, you may find a deeper appreciation of the holidays and for the sacrifices endured by so many. In recognition of those sacrifices and commemoration of their memory, fifteen percent of this book’s profits will be donated to the national nonprofit “Wreaths Across America” for its mission to remember, honor, and teach. This mission is carried out, in part, by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies in over 2,500 participating locations both home and abroad. In the words of President Lincoln, “It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.” -Lieutenant Colonel Dale Beasley (Retired) US Army
