G.I. Joe & Lillie
Remembering a Life of Love and Loyalty
By Joe S. Bonsall (of the Oak Ridge Boys)
My friend ...Joe Bonsall, who happens to be the well known lead singer of the mega hit ... "Elvira" ... by the country music legends and Country Music Hall Of Fame "The Oak Ridge Boys" ...wrote the book ... G.I. Joe & Lillie ... that is a riveting, inspiring, account of his Greatest Generation parents' miraculous meeting during World War II ... which occurred when a nurse attending his heroic decorated dad made a lifelong connection during his recovery from multiple gunshot wounds ... that he received on a Normandy beach during the World War II D-Day invasion ... And then this happily married couple ... gave country music fans and other fellow Americans ... a talented son, who proudly shares his father's name on and off the stage ... and always with a deep love of the USA!
